Bernat will start with a short theoretical part and will answer these two questions:

  • Is WordPress good enough for e-commerce sites? (yep, we know there are other solutions as Magento, Prestashop, etc)
  • Is it worthwhile to make your store multilingual?

Then he will run a demo. He has prepared a sample shop in his localhost running WooCommerce with some products.

Bernat will demonstrate:

  • how to setup WPML with a few languages,
  • how to use the free WooCommerce Multilingual plugin to setup currencies (with formatting, and rounding options),
  • how to translate products together with categories, attributes and custom fields,
  • how the WooCommerce Multilingual plugin works with other third-parties plugins.

Why WooCommerce Multilingual related session are needed

Asked why sessions like this one are important to share during WordCamp events, Bernat explains:

“Here, in Barcelona, Spain, we live in a pretty multicultural and multilingual society. That’s why it is so important to make our websites and e-commerce stores multilingual as well.

Anybody can expand their business globally by simply adding additional languages to their site. In my session I’ll help entrepreneurs, developers and site owners get a better idea of what is required providing best tools and live examples to achieve top results.”
