    1) Falang is already in production site (it’s a qtranslatex migration)
    2) Falang store data in the meta table . You set a default language and you write your content in this language. For each language you configure the default language is displayed if no translation is done.
    wpml store data in other table and need a lot of join query
    qtranslate the data’s for each language are stored in the field. you can’t unpublish it.
    polylang is great if you want a site different for all languages.
    Falang is more when you want the same site in all languages , all translated or not.
    3) see 2
    4) all are stored locally , i haven’t yet make benchmark
    5) nothing all work as before
    6 ) you can translate slug/seo. hreflang tags are not yet enabled
    7) Normally yes but i haven’t all tested. The support is free actually.
    8)9)10) i haven’t tested all yet.
    For page builder i have another solution (only Divi yet) but Elementor soon, look at site
    11) when there are more user , it’s not a big developpement i have already the code for Falang on Joomla.

    You can contact me with the contact form on my site if you want

    thanks for your quick answers!

    I already have my woocommerce products (3000+ products) translated in csv tables.

    1. How can i import (or later export) these translations into falang?

    2. what is the difference between falang and wp multilang, as they both use qtranslate?

    3. what is the difference between falang and this new qtranslate-XT project?

    thank you!

    1) if in your csv file you have the id of the product it’s easy with a script
    the meta are stored with the language code

    the published need to be set to 1 to display it on front-end.

    Falang don’t use qtranslate , i have done a migration tools to Falang

    2) i haven’t tested it, i will of course
    3) qtranslate xt use the same data from qtranslte x , all data’s are stored in the post_content, post_name…


    thank you,

    but i have a csv with woocommerce data with many variant products and image links, how can i import these?
