Product names do not get automatically translated by the system.

You need to maintain each description, per language via the 'Other Languages' facet of the Product Administration (open the product in the 'Product Administration' view within the Product work centre).


Product names can be added for various languages:

  1. Go to the Products work centre
  2. Go to the Product Administration view.
  3. Here, select the relevant product.
  4. Enter Adaptation mode and add the facet 'Other languages'.
  5. Now you can add descriptions in scoped languages.


Alternatively, you can upload additional product descriptions via Odata: Product Object in the data workbench.

The template named " Product_Other_Languages.csv " can be used for this case.

If these languages are allowed in the UI, they should be available for addition in the Data workbench as well.

Check if other languages are available for addition in the Product object =>Other languages tab/ facet in the UI (open product in the Product Administration view). If they are not available, check if these languages are maintained in the Fine tuning activity "Additional Communication Languages".
