Transcy helps you set up more target languages besides your default store language along with some options to help your customers have a first impressive approach when visiting your store.

All Languages

Next to your store default language, you can set up to 5 additional target language for translation.


5 is limitation for Shopify normal Paid plans. More details can be found here.
At the moment, due to some our technical limitation, we can only support maximum 5 target languages for all Shopify Paid plans, we've been working with Shopify to expand the target languages numbers and will keep you updated once it's possible.

Preview a language

You could click on Translation > Manage Translation > Edit translation > choose the page > click on View details button to preview your store translation on default language, or any target language you added.

Add new language

If the number of your target language does not reach 5, you can add new one by:

Clicking on Add target language button
Choose the desired language
Click on Add button.

Check/uncheck on elements you want, then click on Translate button

NOTE: As default, all items will be unselected so you need to choose and select items/pages which you want to translate on your store.

Publish/unpublish language

Simply turn on/off the button next to the target language that you want and take action accordingly.
Note that unpublish action does not reduce the limitation of target language.

Delete language

You can click on Dustbin icon to delete the target language.

NOTE: Once the target language is translated in the app, deleting action of target language does not restore the Available words which have been translated.

Bulk action


For some technical reasons, at the moment we've turn off Bulk action section in app temporarily.

Visitor's Language Detection

Depend on one of below conditions which you need to choose, customer can see a specific language on his/her side.

Store default language: visitor will view store under store default language.

Please turn on Visitor's Language Detection button to see other detected language options. If the detected language is not one of your target languages, your store will be displayed in store default language.

Visitor's browser language: Transcy app will auto-detect visitor’s browser language to display responsive language switcher.
Visitor's country: Transcy app will auto-detect visitor’s locations based on his/her country to display responsive language switcher.

Note: We have an article about how to use this function in the best way here.

Hope you enjoy this feature 😁
