How to view and edit translated content

You could replace/edit your translation content manually for any pages/elements in your store easily.

Open Translation --> Manage translation --> select target language --> choose the page type

Example: Product

Choose which product page you want to edit the translation --> Edit button

Choose element you want to edit the content in the target translation section at the right side --> Save

Check the edited translation on your online store


(*) You can use Editor tool in-app to bold/underline/hyperlink, insert image, etc for your description translation.

(*) Please be noted that the app uses Editor tool outside and they only support Latin characters so we recommend you should save the file name with Latin characters before uploading. Otherwise, it might pop the notification below

(*) For inserted image size limit is maximum 10MB

If you have changed any default content by a new content in Shopify. You could edit translated content or re-translate content in any particular page manually in Manage translation to update new translation accordingly.

Example: You have changed the title of a specific product in Shopify previously and need to re-translate content in-app to update the new translation for this product title.

Go back to the app --> Manage translation --> select target language --> choose Product type --> choose the product page that you want to re-translate the title --> click on Edit button

Choose product name element --> click on Translate button --> By machine

Confirm to re-translate --> Translate now

The app has re-translated and updated the new translation for the product title --> click Save to finish

Then get back to your product page on online store --> choose the target language on Switcher --> view the result.

NOTE: Please be advised that you can only edit the translation for Advanced language type, please check out here to learn more.

In case you already edit default content of an element(s) in a page resource but you want to keep current element's translation and no need to edit its translation. In this case, you can just mark its translation status as "Translated" for better management and recognization. Click here to learn more.
