When adding inventory for markets with different languages, you must make sure the translations are suitable for their cultural values.

You can do this in one of two ways:

  1. Duplicate each inventory item for every market.

    You do this by creating a new inventory item.

    This option is useful if you have to change the images, category, or any other data.

  2. Or, use the translation features to translate the Product Name, Description, and Specifications.

    This article showcases this feature.

  1. Click the SKU or Product hyperlink for the item you want to localize.
