Default Product database in CSV?

I'm looking into X-cart (migrating from Yahoo!).

One important issue for me is the ability to have the complete database in a CSV format. We make modifications daily in excel and upload the CSV every night into Yahoo.

One of the reasons I'm looking into X-cart is because it seems to be truly multilingual. Is this true? So in the product DB would there be like a field called "Product Description" and could I add a field called "Product Description Spanish"???

Any input would be gratefully appreciated!

Pete

Yes. You can create as many languages as you want in the store. You can also import/export csv files. Products, categories, manufacturers and pages have what's called "international description"

Thanks, IДve had actually seen both links.

To clarify my question:

Can I in my product data base (in CSV) have a field called something like "ProductDescriptionEnglish", "ProductDescriptionSpanish" and "ProductDescriptionPortuguese"?

If this is possible do I then link each field to each language?

I can not work on the products online, they must be made in a CSV file (offline) and then imported into x-cart. Will this present a problem with x-cart?

You can import/export product descriptions in different languages.

Pete, not exactly as you described but you do can import/export products data including multi-lingual params like title, description. See http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Import-Export_Guide
