Hi guys,
as all we know an eCommerce is an international commerce. Now that also Multilingual Associations feature has been released in Joomla, I think this is one of the biggest lack here in Hika , a real Joomla Multilanguage integration.

Please, Do we have any hope to see it soon ?

Hi,

I'm sure you already know that there is an integration with Falang which is quite real if you need a multilingual shop with HikaShop.

Now if your question is whether we'll build soon a solution directly integrated in HikaShop to do that, without the need of Falang, that's another question. Yes, that's something we want to do. Will it be soon ? I would say no for two main reasons:
- there is already Falang which work quite good for that
- we have other more pressing features we want to add like web services

Hi Nicolas,

just a note that sure you yet know, the Multilingual impovements are on Joomla 4 Roadmap , to confirm the importance of a real Multilingual vision.

Thanks for your attention...

Hello,

I wrote many times in that forum my opinion about the Joomla multilingual system. So I won't make long speech.
The way that Joomla is performing the multilingual is good for the "article" perspective but not good for an e-commerce solution.
You can do it in HikaShop if you want but it means that you will duplicate every single product for each language ; exactly like you duplicate your categories/articles in Joomla.
