ABOUT LANGSHOP THEME
The only difference lies in its functionality. When you are selling in multiple languages, most likely, you want the app to translate all data in your online store into different languages, which is possible, but with the LangShop theme.
LangShop supports Shopify translation API. It is responsible for the output of the multilingual content. In other words, Shopify API displays translations to international customers that you translate with the help of LangShop.
At this time, Shopify API does not translate resource tags, images, and static text a lot of merchants use in their original themes like Debut, Brooklyn, or any other theme build by third-party developers.
If you use tags, static content, and images, then you should create a Langshop theme. LangShop theme adds its code and assets to the template engine to search for tags and display them at your storefront. You can also change images for your products (collections, blogs) and display different media files for different versions of your store.
