You can export your product translations to a CSV or PO file for several reasons:
- Create a backup of your product translations. If you accidentally delete all product translations, you can restore them in one click using the import tool.
- Edit product translations in bulk using a spreadsheet. Any changes you make in a CSV or PO file will appear in your store admin if you import the edited file back to the app.

LangShop CSV file overview 📁
CSV file contains three columns:
The location column displays system information such as product title or description to indicate the location and import updated product translations from the CSV file back to LangShop.
LangShop exports the original content that appears in the source column. You may compare the translation with the original text, but you do not have to work with the store language in this file.
LangShop will import localized data that is only available in the target column. Here, you can manage translations and replace them with your variants.
LangShop PO file overview 📁
You can use the POEDIT platform to manage translations. PO editor displays the source column (default data) and the additional language translations you exported through the translation app.
