Tell us what you are trying to do?

I'm trying to refurbish a client's website with the following features:
- woocommerce e-commerce
- multilingual, with qtranslatex, english and italian pages, products and taxonomies, for the most part
I'm building a new theme from scratch, and making many improvements.
I want to get rid of qtranslatex and have posts and taxonomies of all kind nicely imported to a WPML multilingual installation.

Is there any documentation that you are following?
https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/qtranslate-importer/

Is there a similar example that we can see?
No.

What is the link to your site?
Here a testing copy of my client's website:
hidden link

At the moment I made two try, both failed with various issues.
Can anyone help me suggesting how to manage this particular scenario?
I would also consider changing strategy like using a different export / import tool - maybe wp all export?

Hello!
Welcome to WPML Support.
I'll do my best to help you solve this issue.

Ok, so just to make sure i get everything correctly:

- You downloaded this plugin: hidden link
- You followed this guide: https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/qtranslate-importer/

- You created a backup before the migration
- It didn't finish and failed (the migration)

Or did you actually finish the migration but found yourself with a few issues?

Please give me as many details as you can, so i can know what happened after you tried migrating the site so i can do my best and help you with the issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Alejandro,

This just to reply with some updates: I had to rebuild the whole testing website, and being just a massive one, it took me hours.
This way, I was able to make new export and evaluate the result: something didn't went as I expected but it's no matter of WPML, instead it looks like the way some product categories translations where made from who first wrote, created a lot of issues.
Marking this as resolved, for now.
Thanks.

Patrizio
