Search with multi-lingual (Translation API)

Has anyone implemented the Translation API to make use of the fairly recently launched native shopify multi-lingual capabilities?
 
I'm successfully getting translated content into Shopify (Using the Langify app), everything works except for search where it will only return results if the search query is in the store default language.
 
Anyone had this issue?

Same here. I was told by support this can be achieved with custom code and to seek help either on the community or from partners. I see @davidkean has a theme that supports search on different languages. Is that limited to your theme or is there a way to roll this out to other themes as well?

Anyone else has some procedure to follow to implement this using custom code?

Thanks!

Hi @bobino,

My themes also support to search in multiple languages. You can check some sample demo stores.

As you see, the search results are the same.

I have developed the Boostheme Toolkit app. This is a Shopify app that will help you translate everything in your store. I don't sell this app. If you buy one of my themes, you will have a free life-time to use this app. All my themes are available at https://boostheme.com/category/best-shopify-themes.
