Shopify is a commerce platform that allows anyone to easily sell online, at their retail location and everywhere in between. Using Transifex Live, you can make your Shopify store multilingual and sell your products worldwide. We have a live example of a translated Shopify store. Use the language drop-down at the bottom right to switch languages.
Below, you'll find instructions for localizing your Shopify store.
Before you begin, you must have a Transifex account and a project you will be associating with your Desk.com site. If you have not already done so, sign up for Transifex here.
To get your Shopify store localized, follow the instructions below.
Installing the Live snippet
Once you've gotten the Live snippet, the next step is to install it in the header of your Shopify theme.
To start, go to the Online Store tab and select Themes.
Next, select your theme, click the three dots and hit Edit HTML/CSS.
In the left-hand column, select your theme from the Layouts folder. In this example our theme is called "theme.liquid."
Now you can begin saving and translating content!
Saving content, translating, and publishing
Handing dynamic content
Dynamic content like dates, times, and counters (e.g. # of articles, # of comments, etc) should not be translated. When approving phrases in Transifex Live, be sure to ignore these types of nontranslatable dynamic content. If your platform lets you edit the theme, you can mark mark elements of your pages as nontranslatable. To learn how, click here.
