The Multilingual Content feature will allow you to have a multilingual online store. This feature allows you to manually translate your items, categories, etc., or set them for Google Translate.
Managing Multilingual Translations #
- Click Catalog.
- Click Multilingual Content. The page shows you a status of how many items, categories, attributes, and scheduled content in your site has been translated into the different languages available. It also shows you if the auto translate through Google feature is enabled.
View/modify a translation #
(for any static information that goes into your template)
- Click the corresponding link.
- Each language shown in the list is a link for the translation of the item, category, etc., into that language. There are two columns: Supported Language and Unsupported Languages (Refer Note section for details).
- Click language link to go to translation page for that item, category, etc.
- Type in the values for the translation in that language. You may also switch quickly among languages by using the drop down list at the top of the table.
- Click Save or Apply to save the changes.
- The Supported Languages column shows the languages for which that specific item, category, etc. has a translation.
- The Unsupported Languages column show which other languages the category can be translated into, but however has not been translated yet.
- By default, items are translated in your store automatically through Google Translate. If you don’t want an item, category, etc. to be translated by Google and you wish to do so manually, check the Don’t Auto Translate by Google check box located at the bottom of the page.
- If you don’t set the second default language on the Site Admin Preferences page, the second default language will not be translated automatically by Google. This means that you have to set the second language before turning on the auto translate feature. For more information about adding a second language, see the Add a New Language Guide.
