Hey, Alain!

Savannah here from the Shopify Guru Team. :) 

Unfortunately, the admin (back end) of the website is only available in English at this time. I'll be sure to let our feature request team know that you'd be interested in that option for the future of Shopify!

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Have a great day,

Savannah

Hi Savanah, I need to know the opposite: how do you change the language from French to English? Shopify always puts the site and backoffice in French, even when I try and leave the 'fr' away. I live in Belgium, but not in the French speaking part, so English is a much better option.

Hi, @Alain_Ramminger@Paul_van_Dyk  and @Irisvdb

 

May here from Shopify.

 

Shopify has launched a beta feature for multi-language admin, and now you can choose other languages besides English for your admin! These languages include German, French, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish. Here are the steps to change your admin language:

 

1. From your admin go to 'Settings > Account'.

2. Under 'Accounts and Permissions', select a user. 

20-11-nsfk0-4nkwd

3. Under 'Language and Region', click on the dropdown to select your language.

5. Click 'Save'.

 

If you have any feedback, feel free to submit them from your admin as well. In your 'Account Settings' page, you will see a prompt box where you can submit your feedback. 

 

Let me know if you have any followup questions!

Hi @May!

 

Any plans for additional languages anytime soon? I am particularly interested in Romanian.

 

Thank you,

Hi, @lsb57!

 

Welcome to our Shopify Community!

 

We are always working towards improving our platform, and adding more languages in the admin is definitely one of them! Although Romanian is currently not supported in the admin, I'm sure there are many other merchants who will find this feature helpful. That being said, I'm more than happy to launch a feature request on your behalf and pass along your suggestion to our Products team. If the request is already there, I can add to it to bump it up - as the more merchants that mention a feature, the more likely they are to be implemented.

 

Thank you so much for your feedback. I really appreciate you taking the time to write it in here. If you have any other questions or suggestions, feel free to reply back to this thread or contact our 24/7 support, and we’ll happily help!

 

Cheers!

So, I am having the same issue. My designer created the site in Brazil, but I am in the US. The backend and front end are both in Portuguese and I can't change it. HELP!
