[Solved] Translation of metafields using Langify and Metafields editor

Hey good people, 

I have been working with a client in Germany for some time, setting up a pretty complex store together with a partner in India. 

The last part is translation, and the client uses now Langify to translate. But much of the content on the site has been added using the metafields. 

Does anyone have any experience with using Langify in combination with the metafield editor? 

My partner in India says this is not possible, but I would just like to check with the community.

Metafieldshttps://apps.shopify.com/metafields-editor

Here's one page in the store, for tea: http://www.nannuoshan.org/collections/green/products/long-jing-shi-feng

All the content from the "Additional information" section is put in metafields. 

My client is pretty unhappy, so any feedback from anyone would be cool.

If you landed here maybe are searching about why product metafields doesn't appear at langify. If so,  try to install Metafileds Guru and check that your product metafields stay under a namespace different than  'global'.  

Langify support feedback:

=======
​Hello,
 
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Unfortunately, langify doesn't show metafields with the namespace "global" by default, because these are often used by third party apps to store setting information that is not supposed to be translated.
Do you have the option to use any other namespace? Alternatively, you could use custom content to translate those metafields......

I hope this would help you. Best regards.
