As you can see from the image above, the setup wizard is very similar to WooCommerce’s own configuration wizard. It will help you configure the following settings. Translate the store page, select translatable product properties, and enable multi-currency mode.
Setup store page
You need to get the standard WooCommerce pages to appear in all languages on your site.WooCommerce Multilingual will do this automatically for you. This is also handled in the setup wizard. To do this manually, go to WooCommerce → WooCommerce Multilingual Page and click on the Status tab. If you haven’t set up store pages yet, a message will tell you that store pages don’t exist and offer to create them.
WooCommerce Multilingual Status and Alerts
Multi-language status and alerts
WooCommerce Multilingual will create these pages using the available translated page titles. You can always change the page titles for different languages at a later date.
On this page, you will also see a warning about the lack of translations for taxonomy terms. If you’re using taxonomies for product changes or organizing products into categories and tags, it’s a great idea to translate all taxonomies.
Translate the shopping cart and checkout pages
Translating WooCommerce’s checkout and shopping cart pages is a little different than translating the rest of WooCommerce’s content. The themes and plugins on your website will usually provide these translations, but in some cases, you’ll need to do a few extra steps.
Translate product categories, tags, attributes, and custom taxonomies.
Most stores are organized by product category. Some also use labels. If you’re using variations, you’re probably also using product attributes.WooCommerce Multilingual makes it easy to translate all of these. Alternatively, you can set up WooCommerce Multilingual to display the original product categories, tags and attributes if their translation is not available. First, use the standard WooCommerce editing interface to create product categories, tags and attributes in the default language. When attributes are created, they are marked as translatable by default. You can change this option for each attribute at any time. Don’t worry about translating categories, labels and attributes just yet. Tip: Product categories, tags and attributes are stored in the WordPress taxonomy. wooCommerce Multilingual includes a handy interface for translating taxonomy terms. Go to the WooCommerce → WooCommerce Multilingual page. At this point, look at the other tags on the screen. You’ll see the tabs for each taxonomy that belongs to your store.
