Hello, i have recently update VM2 to VM3. I have a multilanguage VM(i have installed both english and greek languages). Now my question is how can i translate the products that i created in greek to english? I have read an older post ( but i can't find language dropdown list on top of the view.

Hello guys and thank you for your reply, yes greek and english are installed and selected in both Joomla and VM(in VM they are selected in Multilingual shop but from left it shows the greek flag) and in Joomla both configured as "Content". And i believe that was installed VM3 language packs because as you can see it displays the vm Results and show results in both languages. And in DB there are both as you can see on printscreen. Am i doing something wrong? I don;t know where to translate the product and description in each lanaguage.



Can you see the dropdown when in Shop settings (/administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=user&task=editshop)?


Thank you Ghost for your reply :) nothing is selected, Should i select all?
