FAQ

Does this work with other e-commerce plugins?

No. This plugin is tailored for WooCommerce.

What do I need to do in my theme?

Make sure that your theme is not hard-coding any URL. Always use API calls to receive URLs to pages and you’ll be fine.

My checkout page displays in the same language

In order for the checkout and store pages to appear translated, you need to create several WordPress pages and insert the WooCommerce shortcodes into them. You’ll have to go over the documentation and see that you performed all steps on the way.

Can I have different URLs for the store in different languages?

Yes. You can translate the product permalink base, product category base, product tag base and the product attribute base on the Store URLs section.

Why do my product category pages return a 404 error?

In this case, you may need to translate the product category base. You can do that on the Store URLs section.

Can I set the prices in the secondary currencies?

By default, the prices in the secondary currencies are determined using the exchange rates that you fill in when you add or edit a currency. On individual products, however, you can override this and set prices manually for the secondary currencies.

Can I have separate currencies for each language?

Yes. By default, each currency will be available for all languages, but you can customize this and disable certain currencies on certain languages. You also have the option to display different currencies based on your customers’ locations instead.

Is this plugin compatible with other WooCommerce extensions?

WooCommerce Multilingual is compatible with all major WooCommerce extensions. We’re continuously working on checking and maintaining compatibility and collaborate closely with the authors of these extensions.

I first had an error "Unexpected end of JSON input" that disappeared as soon as I translated all product categories and all attributes.

Its been two years and I am getting one issue in advance translation but even after many support tickets, they did not resolve my issue. I am disappointed because i am stuck now.

Not getting better even after years of development. Most weired usability, if you are not an architect who knows everything after studying the 300 page docs... Works with basic infrastructure but gets very strange with advance Website. Using a huge amount of effort for the logic and the translation. WooCommerce with plugins forget it...
