WPML is more of a manual translation plugin.  It allows you define multiple languages and then add the different translations of the same content via the edit screen.  

I believe they also sell a human-translation service as an upgrade so you publish in one language and then their translators add the others.  It also has the ability to interface with the Google translator API but my experience is that aspect of the plugin doesn't work as well as some others.

For sites that can survive with automated (Google) translation I use TransPosh.

I have installed WP and woocommerce and import products ..Everything works fine in English language.

Using Transposh will it convert them automatically to multiple language like French,german.
