We're pleased to be able to share that Product Type is now translatable. This works with Search & Discovery app so that you can use this as a filter in different languages. You will find 'Product type' as a new field on a product, and it will also be auto-translated when translating either the whole store or just one product. In order to use it as a filter, you'll need to be sure that all products have the same translation.

I think after this update my filters doesn't work well.

This is true but on API call it is still reported on the original language when the title and descriptions are translated.

Very nice, but what if you have 4000 products in one product_type??? I know CSV export and back import but this is very slow method. After i do csv export and import in product type filter in default language i have both descriptions in default language and translated desc. in english

For example in Croatian i have Plovci translated in english like Floats and thats fine. When i select english i see Floats and thats also fine, but when i select Croatian / default store language i see Plovci Floats (both translations). Why is this a problem???? What i am missing

We are seeing the same behaviour in our shops. We use the Enterprise theme from Clean Canvas. 

Default language shows all product_type translations as value in the Product Type filter, while the 'other languages' show the correct translated value.

@richbrown_staff Is this an issue within Shopify or the Search and Discovery app or could it be the theme?
