Multilingual Commerce Site

How do you manage multilingual sites with the Commerce for Umbraco package?

In general, we recommend using Umbraco's excellent localization abilities and storing only non-localized product information in the Commerce database.  If you plan to use multiple currencies per product you will need to extend the project in order to accomodate.

Can you give me an example how I can have, for example, a product name and a product description for English and French?

What about Categories, Email and all others localizable values in both language?

You cannot store the localized product info in the Commerce SQL store, but would need to use Umbraco's dictionary items keyed to the product's ID (or GUID, etc...)...see the excellent documentation on this in the Umbraco Wiki (

Same goes for the other specific values - use the Umbraco dictionary.
