Related products block for multilanguage carts

I have a store in two languages (v. 3.0.3) and I am considering creating a Recommended/Related products block based on tutorial at CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation

Following the above procedure I successfully created a block and manually added some related products. The problem is, when I switch to the other language, I expect the same block to display same products in the new language - instead, the block has no content. It is definitely available in product Blocks tab (its title is displayed correctly in each language) but there are no products in its content area.

Is this by design or is a bug? Not sure about use cases when one would need to add different related products depending each language, it seems natural to be the same, just translated. Before checking addons like the one recommended at Related Products - General Questions - CS-Cart Community Forums I'd like to know maybe I am missing something obvious (having less than a year experience with CS).

Thank you.

Hello petrescs,

Thank you for your message.

Unfortunately, I have failed to reproduce the problem in standard CS-Cart version 3.0.3. However, I have an idea on how this could happen in your store. When you create a block and add products when the block is being created, these products are added for all languages. But when you create a block first and then you edit this block and add a product to it, these products will be added only for the language which is selected in the CS-Cart admin panel at the moment.

So I assume that the issue in your case occurs because you create a block first and only then edit it and add products to the block. Please check it.

Thank you.
