In case downgrading plan, page's status will be Unpublish by default, you need to publish the page according to your plan limitation to make it active with Auto Translate function. Click here to learn more function limit on per plan.

You can only publish Product/Collection/Other page to Auto Translate list according to your added Page number limit on each plan. For instance, you're in Growth plan, you can add up to 10 Product pages and 10 Collection pages to Auto Translate list, so you can only publish the Page number based on this limit. If you reach the limit, you can't publish more. In this case, we recommend you should upgrade to a higher plan to get more pages published.


Example: In case you're in Premium plan and get the limit reached with 100 Collection pages published in the Auto Translate list for instance. So you can't add/publish more in this case, please reselect and only publish pages that you need on your website. We've still been trying to improve this limit better in the near future.


Auto translate languages: There are Advanced languages that you have set up before in your language setting so you could choose one or more options to keep your translation updated constantly. Pages (Product/Collection/Other resources) that you add in Auto translate list will be applied for selected Advance languages.


Once page(s) (Product page, Collection page, Other pages) is added in Auto Translate list and target languages are set up in Auto Translate Setting already, target languages translation on that page will be auto updated if there is any change or new content on default language version.

Also, for Other pages, the app will auto update the translation when: User performs Manual Sync action and there is any new content on the page added in Auto Translate list OR when our system has done with Daily Sync, and detect any new content on that page, the translation of target 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 new content 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.
