Hey everyone!

For anyone who is looking to sell in more than one language - Shopify now rolled out the multi-language feature to all Shopify merchants! (The Translations API was announced at Unite last year but was exclusively available in developer preview only.)

To celebrate the new feature, we created a free app to help merchants manage
 the translatable resources in their stores.

 

Translation Lab: https://apps.shopify.com/content-translation

✔ Translation Lab works seamlessly with Shopify’s new multi-language feature which means that no additional code is added to your theme. And that there is no external backend that can crash or slow you down.

✔ There are over 130 languages available to choose from. 

 

✔ You will have full control over the translation of each and every resource in your store ( your products, pages, blogs, blog post, theme, etc.)

 

✔ Last but not least, Translation Lab is free and super easy to use! 

 

Let me know if you give Translation Lab a try! We'd love to hear your feedback.

 

Kindly,

The Sherpas Design Team

Hi,

 

We have a problem with the translations of our shop. For the login and recover password forms they need to perform a POST to "/account/login" but when the customer is on the dutch version for exemple it performs a POST to "/nl/account/login" which doesn't exist.

 

And we're using "Translation Lab" to translate our shop.

 

Do you have an idea how to solve this ?

 

Thanks!

We had that same problem - we had to change the theme code so it the form would not post to /pt/account/login for portuguese (in your case the main language is "nl", ours is "pt") - as in https://wickettjones.com/account/login vs the english version https://wickettjones.com/en/account/login

Yes, you need to make sure that your theme does not use relative urls like:

 

/ for homepage

 

/cart for cart

 

/login for login form

 

etc.

 

You theme needs to use the new liquid routes object:

I hope this is useful!
