The 5 Best Translation Apps for Shopify


Translating your Shopify store is no longer just an option; it’s necessary! If you ever want to reach a larger audience and be able to sell to customers all around the world, you have to make sure you speak their language. Shopify offers you the option to sell in up to 20 languages. In order to start adding the languages you’d like to translate your store into, just go to the Settings on your Shopify store home page and click on Languages. There, you can see your shop’s languages and add more. Choose which language(s) you want to use and simply add them to your list if translated languages.

When you do that, however, Shopify will request that you either use a third-party translation app or import your translations. There are many translation app options for you to choose from. Here’s a list of the 5 best Shopify translation apps, ordered from least to most expensive based on their minimal subscription fee.

LangShop

LangShop offers you auto-translation through AI techniques, manual editing, translation suggestions and revisions, media management, and analytics, along with detection of your customers’ locations. It can also translate your content without your active control in background mode. Another newer option is the glossary, whereby you can set certain rules for translations. Finally, the LangShop subscription includes an import/export feature and 24-hour customer support with different communication channels.

  • Free monthly plan available
  • Paid monthly plan options: Basic ($9.90), Standard ($33.90), Advanced ($67.90) and Enterprise (custom pricing). Lower monthly fee for yearly subscriptions.

Weglot

If you’re familiar with translation apps, you might have heard of Weglot. While most other apps we’ve mentioned are specifically compatible with Shopify, Weglot translates almost any website. The app is easy to use with a simple interface, and it offers an SEO service and helpful customer support. The number of languages and amount of translated words depends on your subscription plan choice, however.

After that, you have full control on your site’s content and translations. Translation Lab also offers customer support. The rest of the services, however, depends on which plan you choose. The paid plans all offer the import/export option for your translations. With bigger plans you also get a greater range of useful services such as HTML preprocessing and development support. Access to these features requires a greater investment, though.

Translation and localization of your store becomes very simple. The number of languages and amount of words included in your plan depends on the type you end up choosing. Even the level of support you receive depends on your plan, with the beginning plan only including basic support. The more expensive packages, however, include premium customer support.
