Hey @gavallen , please send some screenshots here or by DM to me and we'll work this out for you. What would be most helpful is an example of a product with this issue, being edited in Translate & Adapt. Thanks!

Hi Gavin, I can't see an image unfortunately - you may need to upload direct here in the forum.

 

When you say the 'product description has downloaded in dutch', are you bringing product descriptions in from somewhere externally, or have you written them yourself?

 

Thanks

Thanks. I don't have enough information to be able to help so far. Can you try again to share a screenshot?

 

It sounds like your store default language is English, but you are copying and pasting Dutch content in, and it's not working. If that's the case, you need to translate the Dutch (e.g. via Google Translate) before adding it to your default product content. Then this can be used to translate into other languages.

 

The system won't work well if you copy Dutch into your default content for a product if your store default language is set to English.
