If you manage a multilingual store on Shopify, you may want to display different images for different language versions. You can change images for products, collections, and blog posts. It means media files for the primary language can differ from the media you decide to add for another version.
Shopify merchants can translate all data in the original theme except images and tags. Please refer to the Shopify Help Center to check what resource types and fields are currently available for translations.
When you translate alt text and change images for other languages in the Debut theme (for example), the alert notification pops up under
Unfortunately, Shopify does not have native functionality translating or changing images (alternative text). To remove the alert and change your media files for additional languages, you need to create a LangShop theme.
Translated images are only visible in the LangShop theme. You can preview media files in the original theme. However, images will not display at the storefront.
- From your LangShop admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
- Select a theme.
- Confirm the action by clicking
Please wait for LangShop to create a copy of your original theme and rename it to LangShop | Debut (example name).
When the translation process is complete, you can update Products, Collections, or Blog Posts, translate alt text and change images for additional languages.
