    You should update to the latest version YES! Feeds finally supports translation of fields using Entity translation! Also new in this release is support for updating existing items only and for the CSV parser an option is added to convert the character encoding of the CSV file to UTF-8

Feeds: Entity Translation

This module adds support for importing data through Feeds into translatable fields handled by Entity Translation.

The module exposes fields that are translatable into all enabled languages, enabling the creation of translations of entities when importing.

Another fantastic Solution

Import from two xml files (on for each language), my empiric solution :

  • I created two feed imports.
  • I forced the language field for each one.
  • Two separated nodes were created for each content (one in each language) but it didn't links the translations.
  • So I used a SQL query to finish the job, it's based on the feeds uuid
