Auto translate settings

- Last but not least, you can re-check all actions that you have set for Auto update translation or change related settings later in "Auto translate settings".

- There are Advanced languages that you have set up previously in your language setting so you could select favorite languages to keep its translation updated constantly.

- Pages including products/collections/other resources that you've added in Auto translate list will be applied for selected Advanced languages.

Process rule

When Product page, Collection page, Other resource are added in Auto Translate list and Advanced languages are set up in Auto Translate Setting already, Advanced languages translation on those pages will be updated automatically if any changes or new contents are found on default language version.

For Other resource, the app will auto update the translation for page(s) added in Auto translate list when:

You press Sync data from Shopify button (Manual sync action) after changing default contents on those pages. The system will detect the new change then update the translation.

OR when our system has done with Daily Sync, and detected any new content on those pages, the translation of Advanced languages which are set up in Auto Translate Setting will be updated as well. Please click here for more details about Sync action.

Please be advised that according to our rule, our system will set a certain time of day to run Daily sync automatically. So if you do not find any content updated in-app yet after changing new default content, please kindly wait some time then our system will scan, detect the new content and update it to the app.

We hope that helps you much.
