The Localization section of your product profile page is used to generate and manage translations for your selected product. Thus, Vendors can provide translations for the product data, allow their business partners to create additional translations, and consequently reach a wider audience. Distributor and Resellers can also create translations and select an active translation that will be used to display required information on commerce or other external systems.
Note that Localization section requires you to specify the primary translation for a product defined on the Connect platform. The primary translation represents your generated translation object that is used to define your product specifications and other product data within the Connect portals and distribution systems.
Use the Localization section to assign primary translations, activating translation objects, adding new translations, comparing translations and perform other operations. In case more information on the localization functionality is required, refer to the Localization module documentation.
