In another questions of mine, I was able to import multiple products, and change the language of them, based on the store and url_key settings like this:

sku;store;name;url_key;
test#001;english;car;car-key
test#001;german;auto;auto-key

and this allows me in Magmi to import 100s of products, which can be shown in native language when using the language switcher menu etc. Great.

However - I cannot manage the categories in the same way. If I do this:

sku;store;name;url_key;categories
test#001;english;car;car-key;english-cat-name
test#001;german;auto;auto-key;german-cat-name

.. using on-the-fly-categories, the categories themselves are visible from both the english and german views.

How can I manage this in Magmi - with 100s of categories, I don't want to have to adjust them by hand. I am hoping there's a way to automate this somehow?

Thanks.

  • Hi, will it help if I provide more information - or rephrase the question? Essentially, I am asking this "How can I manage the translation of many categories easily?". Perhaps this will give a different answer? – egg Jul 1 '14 at 6:44
  • any update as how to do that with one root instead of multiple root? – wlin Mar 8 '16 at 20:18

A full category tree need to be set for each locale, with associated store view.

Then , you need to use the multistore syntax for category plugin for defining localized categories under each root category (one per localized category tree).

  • thanks Dweeves for your feedback. In the short-term, I used a reduced category set of around 20, and changed them by hand. I was then able to use your tool to import the group products I needed into each store using the store ID. All worked nicely. I'm wondering if there is any major impact or pro/con in having separate trees? The pro is, I can use your tool to set it up. What could be the con? Thanks!! – egg Jul 3 '14 at 18:45
