I understand from some search its not possible to translate the dynamic checkout button text "Buy it Now" to other languages - it will always be in english language whatever language you have in the shop - is that correct?

 Hey, Terje!

 

Jason here from Shopify Support. Thank you for reaching out!

 

You can change the language of the dynamic checkout button by changing your theme's language. For instance, when I switch the theme's language to French, the dynamic checkout button also switches to French.

As long as your theme supports the language, you can switch the theme's language by Shopify admin > Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Languages. Just right below the heading, click on Change theme language.

A popup window will show you which language is available on the theme. Keep in mind that in order to switch language, the theme has to be published first. 08_21-4ndr3-wwhth 

Please note: If you have the theme's language set in French and the customer has an English browser, it's still going to be showing in French. The button isn't responsive to the browser's language.

 

I hope this information helps, however, should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reply back here and I'd be happy to help out!

 

All the best,
Jason

Hi thanks,

 

I understand but I have made a Norwegian translating of my Minimal theme - that is sadly not standard. Why I not understand when you have both Swedish and Danish and Norway is the country that shop most on internet in Scandinavia. Anyway how can I change the dynamic button text? I can see it in F12 html code but not find it when searching the code in Shopify also not in languages.

Hi, Terje.


Thank you for your insight. I'm going to forward your input to your theme development team, so they can work towards including the language in the future. In the meantime, this is something the Shopify's theme support team can do on your behalf. However, this requires that I authenticate your account and ensure you meet the requirements before I send the request up! If you'd like to go down this road please provide me your store URL and I'd be happy to send you an email to start the process.

 

Best, 

Jason

Hey,

 

Is there any other way to accomplish this as of yet? I'm running Out of The Sandbox's Turbo theme in Finnish and can't find a way to make the dynamic checkout button appear in Finnish.
