Hello!

 

I have a problem, we try to translate Buy It Now button, here's our shop: 

 

https://byggimportoren.no/collections/mest-solgt/products/siga-corvum-12-48-rull-a-25-lm

 

We did manage to translate it to Kjøp Nå, but when i click on it, it becomes Buy it now again :(

Hi @SHISHA,

 

Nick here from Shopify. 

 

That does seem quite strange alright. Thanks for sharing your store URL for the example also, I see what you mean. I reached out to our theme support team about it, they mentioned that it seems like the theme you are using is a third party purchased theme and not a Shopify developed theme. Because of this, your best next step would be to reach out to the theme developers directly. Can you let me know what theme you are using, please? We can find out who the developers are then. The reason it would be best for the theme developers to look into this is that they wrote the theme for the code and are much more proficient and comfortable with it. 

 

Hope this helps and points you in the right direction! 

 

All the best, Nick

Hello Nick, 

 

Thank you for reply, we are using this theme: 

 

https://electro.arenacommerce.com/

 

I pasted your answer to the authors, here's their answer:

 

"Buy it now" button is Shopify default, we cannot edit. So we have to use javascript to translate it after it is loaded. However, if you click on it, Shopify will handle this event and that button will be reloaded again.
 
We see Debut theme on your store, it is Shopify default theme. So you can enable "Buy it now" button on this theme and contact Shopify for help. We will take a look after Shopify help you do this.
 
Regards,
ArenaTheme Support Team
 
I cannot afford the luxury of switching themes as the website is live and is being advertised.

Thanks for getting back to me @SHISHA and letting me know what the developers wrote back. 

 

I asked the theme support team again with that information and they said this is something which a lot of other store owners are looking for with different languages also. As it stands it's difficult to do much currently as the text for this button is controlled by the core and not the theme. I will add your store and Norwegian to the list of stores with this feature request. Be sure to keep an eye on things for future updates regarding it.

jonasta, it looks like Shopify will fix this soon because it is a core issue, and many store owners have this problem. But in the mean time, if you want to translate the text with JavaScript (same solution as SHISHA) you don't have to program it by yourself, you can use my Shopify-app called Force Translate Anything

This is an accepted solution.

Hi @Dok,

 

As @jonasta mentioned this feature is available now. You can only change the language on the cart and checkout page for the Buy Button before you generate the Buy Button code.

 

Editing the language of the cart page on the buy button needs to be done before the button has been saved. Once a button has been saved, editing the language is no longer possible, as the code has already been generated.

 

To change the language on the cart page, click “Shopping Cart”:

 

20-04-qlo34-dqcfi

 

From there, you can enter your translations and edit the colors, too! 

 

20-04-8v0nn-eme9m

 

To edit the language of the checkout page for the buy button, go to Settings > Checkout. Scroll down to the bottom and click “Manage Checkout Language”: 

 

20-04-f1k7p-hfn2f

 

Then, fill out your translations. If the Online Store sales channel is not installed, the Checkout Language editor will look like this:

 

20-04-nox7l-0eifo

 

Hope this helps!
