Navigation url of products: language depencency

Hello,

In the data for Products in hybris marketing, a navigation url can be added to the product information.

You can also fill in a language for the Product.

However the language is only applicable to the Name & Description of the product, and not to the navigation url. Table CUAND_PROD_DESC has the language column, but CUAND_PROD_ROOT and CUAND_PROD_FACET which contain the navigation url's, are not language dependent.

However, our navigation url's are language dependent as well. e.g. www.website.com/fr/product/productid.html goes to the French page on the website of this product.

How could we maintain language dependent navigation url's?

Especially in combination with product recommendation in emails, I suppose you can't create an additional field in CUAND_PROD_ROOT for language and the recommendation model will take into account that field dependent on the language of the customer this mail is sent to...?

Kr,

Joyca

Hi Joyca,

I have discussed this requirement with the responsible product architect and he proposed an approach to use a segmentation profile in order to calculate a language dependent URL based on the personalized communication language of the contact. This information could be transferred by means of the target group for use in an email campaign.

However the requirement to have the described function as part of the content studio standard functionality is of course also valid. Therefore we acknowledge it and take it over into the development planning for future releases.

Hi Joyaca,

currently it is unfortunately not supported that products can carry language dependent URLs. It is only possible to navigate, e.g. from the newly introduced app "products - use and resonance" to a common product page, which has needs to have default language.

However if you want to achieve this in the email of a campaign I think it can be achieved as follows: retrieve the contact's communication language and combine it with the navigation URL to navigate to the language dependent product page in a web shop.

One can also imagine that during runtime in the web shop the language is adjusted to the browser language, but this needs to be redirected on the web side.

Thanks and best regards,

Hello Josef,

Browser language isn't really an option. Many browsers are set to English (mine is, while I actually speak Dutch), and the site doesn't exist in English, so then the site still wouldn't know to display French or Dutch.

The other option:

How could you do that?

The "Product Recommendation" block in Content Studio is so black-box that I wouldn't know how to influence where it takes the NAV_URL from...
