Target language

Target language is the language you wish to add to your website besides your store default language so that your targeted customers could view your store easily in their local language. Transcy will use your default language to translate into target languages.

Language source

Currently we provide 2 types of target language source in-app to help you with the best translation quality. So paid users could choose and use one of these or both types to translate target languages. Also, users could switch Target language from Advance language type to Basic language type and vice versa.
