First, you've ever heard Selling multiple language in Shopify?

As you can enable multiple languages from your Shopify admin to create separate URLs for your translated content. Once customers visit a translated URL, your store automatically shows the translated version.

Besides English is the default language of Shopify, some Shopify themes also support more than one language, so you could also translate these theme languages in Shopify admin. More details can be found here.

To sell in multiple languages, you need to follow below requirements:

A supported third-party language translation app installed on your store.
A theme that's compatible with selling in multiple languages.
A theme that has a language selector.
