Import products in two languages in PrestaShop

How to correctly export product CSV of 2 diferent languages So importing it, prestashop wouldn't not import them as seperate products but as one whit diferent languages?


PrestaShop's "import" feature gives possibility to import only one language at the same time.

This means that "import" process must be splitted into 2 steps (For each language individually. If you've got more languages - you will need to do this for each language)

Our module to "export products" is crafted to work with prestashop's default "import" tool.  Options included to module gives possibility to select language that will be used to create feed file.
This means that you will need to generate feed files for each language. Let's start with default shop language (shop where you want to import products). Then do the same for rest languages.

When you files will be ready go to "import" tool and:

  1. Firstly import default language file.
    prestashop will create "products" in your shop.
    Turn on option to "force all id numbers"

    screenshot for reference: 

     -  thanks to this ID numbers of items will be the same as ID numbers in exported CSV file
    (this is important! especially if your products do not have "reference" numbers. Thanks to this we will have possibility to update products in next step)

  2. Then import second language
    Turn on option to "force all id numbers" again
    Then select second language in option "Language of the file" (use language that is used in your exported csv file)
    thanks to this prestashop will not create new items but it will update them (name, descriptions etc.)
