Hey Psind707,

Nick here from Shopify.

The URL's assigned to your products by the Shopify system are required to be that way for your store's liquid to work correctly. We don't allow modifications to the URL's structure for that reason.

Thanks for reaching out :)

I didn't mean the URL strucutre.  I meant the product URL in the field "Product and Handles" such as 

https://www.thaidiycupcake.com/products/cupcakewrappers1 . Can I change cupcakewrappers1 to Thai langauge for better result display in google ?

Hey Psind707,

The handles will need to use the English alphabet. The Thai abugida isn't supported.

I jump on these forums to help and share some insights. Not looking to be hired, and not looking for work.

Don't hand out staff invites or give admin password to forum members unless absolutely needed. In most cases the help you need can be handled without that.

Hi,

You can translate your Shopify store including your URLs with GTranslate https://apps.shopify.com/multilingual-shop-by-gtranslate (URL translation feature available in the paid version).

Here is a Shopify store with GTranslate: https://www.mimiholliday.com

@Edvard_Ananyan The online store you are referring to doesn't have an option to change language.......

@Edvard_Ananyan I did that already. The product URLs don't change. There is only the language prefix on the URL. That's not appropriate translation.

@JohnHolmes Sorry, I have just realized that the mentioned website does not have our URL Translation feature.

I cannot share any other Shopify stores which use GTranslate for privacy reasons, but you can check our own website https://gtranslate.io/ to check how URLs are also translated. It is not based on Shopify, but it does not matter.

Thanks!

Maybe they think we are stupid or something...We NEED to be able to translate the slugs! Otherwise it's useless for SEO.
