Transcy - What is Theme resource and how can manage translation in the app?

What is Theme resource

Definition: Theme includes a series of tabs and info text/wording inside for the following categories:

Go to Shopify admin --> Online store --> Open tab (...) on current public theme --> Edit default theme content to find tabs and text for your Store theme.

For example:

NOTE: You might not find some tab names on your store theme like the above example since they vary on different Shopify theme language editors and specific stores.

How can manage Theme translation in app

At the moment you could easily translate or edit translation for elements belonging to theme such as Homepage, Checkout, cart, ect by search default content of any element that you want to find on available resources in Theme Content or Custom Content.

Translation --> Manage Content --> choose target language --> Manual Sync --> Theme resource type --> Theme content

You might search default content and will find cart/checkout elements in Checkout & system or Sections in Theme Content.

In case you have some custom elements which are created in your theme editor, you can find them in Custom Content.

Example: Custom blocks, rich texts, buttons which are not default store theme contents, you create/customize them manually in Theme editor, these contents will be collected in Custom content section.

Hope this helps you a lot.
