Product information

You can localize product descriptions, names, codes, and customer-facing documents, such as email, reports, pack sheets and shipping labels, if you are doing business in multiple languages, locales or regions.

Product descriptions are driven by merchant catalogs and are translated in Order Management if the catalog information has been translated. Customer-facing documents are translated into the language of the customer order.
