How to Translate Your Shopify Theme

When trying to reach a wider audience, it is essential to translate every part of your Shopify store. From browsing through products to placing and tracking orders. Your customers should always be able to view your store’s text in their own language. It makes their shopping experience easier to navigate through, to reach more buyers.

What is the best one?

Out of the box, Shopify offers you several themes to choose to fit your store and style. By default, those come in English language. Further, most of them come in additional languages as well. You can then translate all your text content, cart, and checkout information.

Yet, in case your theme doesn’t include your desired language out of the box, you can still create and use your own translations for the store. To do that, you’ll need a translation app that is compatible with Shopify and has a user-friendly interface.
