Allows running fully multilingual e-commerce sites using WooCommerce and WPML.
with the latest update, some labels disappear, layout gets messed up and even some products turn into white pages just while activating WooCommerce Multilingual (for WPML). All other plugins have no effect on these bugs and all plugins are up-to-date. It is as bad as an alpha version or developments that you can expect on a sandbox. Reporting issues to onthegosystems doesn't help either. For years now, they are not able to fix the bugs or bring a stable version. It's a shame for paid plugins (WPML, Composite Products etc.) and I would not recommend it any further.
This plugin makes things too complicated.
Functions just doesn't work. Always have abnormal behavior.
I use it just because it is the only plugin that can bridge WPML and WooCommerce.
Garbage plugin. Period.
I wish I had never invested in the WPML suite. The plugin messed up my woocommerce install. I have installed everything up to date, including all WPML plugins and WPML woocommerce. I have been developing websites for 8 years now so not a total beginner either. Examples of bugs:
-Some products do not display on the admin pages (total catalog is 100+ products but only half of it is visible). This means that they exist, but you cannot edit them. How crazy! If I disable all WPML plugins my eshop starts behaving normal again.
-WMPL breaks the behavior of other very useful plugins, like product filters and bulk product edit
-WPML makes a big mess in your admin by duplicating everything. In some case it made even more versions than I asked for. If some day you decide to stop using it you end up with a terribly messy list of products, mixed up of multiple languages, and that will make your shop admin go nuts.
I wish I had known all this before. Please think twice before giving your $ to this tool, it does more harm than good. It's a total waste of time.
The software is far below release quality and has critical problem. WooCommerce has almost perfect translation in Japanese and works fine in Japanese. But once you install WPML plugins, it "translates" Japanese to English which is obviously unnecessary. In result, I have Japanese strings in English page and English strings in Japanese page. This is not my fault because I prepared new WordPress environments and installed many times. The support guy says this is "expected behavior”. I kept asking him almost 2 weeks but he didn't have any solutions.
yes, if you want to screw up your business, take a try
This plugin IS ABSOLUTELY NOT the solution for a multilingual e-commerce site.
I can assure you that you will regret it, and if you're not it's maybe because you don't know you're already dead.
I'm sorry, but sometimes you have to face the truth, this system is highly unreliable, and you can put all the effort and your heart to try to fix it but it's not possible.
This system (woocommerce + wpml + wcml) is released with really lethal sneaky bugs that produce inconsistency, bad behavior and want to kill you and your business.
Support is available (if you have paid) but bug fixes will come too late, you will have became a walking dead already.
It happens several times, that updates are released and not really tested before. In case of errors, bad support with long waiting time...
After every update, it was wordpress, woocommerce o wpml, the shop structure were broken. Problems with shopping cart, whit home configuration, adding products to cart, with variations... finally, after moths of work and lost the wpml licence without a solution, and the last update of wp and woo, I decide to uninstall wpml because after several moths with no solutions from the support center, I decide no to pay again for the licence to have the right to download the last update that they say that have solved the problems with cart... The uninstall system fails and I have to delete all the duplicated products, pages... just a pity.
After uninstall the shop runs well.
for webs without woo, it works well.
Worst I've ever seen
Get this plug in for free and you have to buy 4 other plugins to make it work
cheap way of getting money
This plugin costed me $79 and doesn't work at all. It doesn't have any step-by-step instructions so unless you wish to spend a few months tinkering with it, don't bother. By then, you can't even ask for a refund. This plugin deletes your pages whenever you add pages. It doesn't translate menus. THe support is non-existent. Look elsewhere and don't make the same mistake I did and many others did as well.
Waste of time and money.
It would save us a lot of time if only a few simple words like "This plugin is not free" was added to your description. Once installed nothing happens unless you buy an additional plugin for $195
