Akeneo PIM provides the solution for centralized, product data collection, management, and filtration of the product. We export the product from Akeneo to the e-commerce channel in a single language.
But when you have a multilingual website and you want to export your product data in multi-language. For this, you have to export the product data for each language separately. It will take more time and resources to export the products.
However, we can install the WooCommerce WPML plugin and turn the e-commerce website content multilingual. Before WPML we were unable to export the product in Multilanguage with Akeneo. Now Webkul has introduced the WooCommerce Akeneo WPML integration.
Akeneo WooCommerce WPML integration exports the categories, attributes, and attribute terms in multi-languages.
Create Product in Akeneo
To create a product in Akeneo, go to navigate to Products and click Create button. Now, you need to choose the product type as– Product or Product Model.

Export the Product to WooCommerce
Now to export your product data you need to create a job profile and execute it. First, go to Exports>Create Export Profile and enter a unique code, label and select a job profile.
After creating an export profile you can see that you can export the product in a single locale. If you are running a multilingual website then with the Akeneo WooCommerce connector you can export the product in a single language.
For exporting the product to the Different locales you have to run the export job many times. It will take more time and management costs. After running the export job you can see the product in the WooCommerce store.
If you select the other language like French then the product will not be shown in the product catalog.
You can see the product has been exported in a single language. If you want to see the product in other languages you have to export it again. You can also check the product WooCommerce customer panel.
