Step 1. Selecting languages 🇨🇦
Select languages from the list into which you want to translate your Online Store.
LangShop supports Shopify translation API. Depending on your Shopify plan, you can add different number of languages to your Online Store: 1 additional language for Free Plan, up to 5 for Standard Plan, and up to 20 languages for Advanced and Enterprise Plans. To check further details regarding Shopify plans and the number of languages you can add to your store, please refer to Shopify Help Center or get in touch with Shopify 24/7 Support.
Step 2. Selecting currencies 💵
LangShop allows you to add additional currencies to the store. There is no limitation in the number of currencies you want to display at your storefront.
This step is optional. You can skip it if you do not need additional currencies in your online store.
Step 3. Translating store data 🇫🇷
LangShop provides you with information about categories that will participate in the translation process. By default, the app translates all data in the store. You can manually uncheck the boxes of those categories that you prefer not to translate.
