GraphQL API: Get Metafields translations

Hello,

 

I'm able to get the products translation via GraphQL API but I can't figure out how and if it's possible to get translated metafields as well. More specifically I need to recover the variant metafields.

This is my current call with untranslated metafield

 

query getProduct {
  product(id: "gid://shopify/Product/6550868590685") {
    en: translations(locale: "en") {
      key
      locale
      value
    }
    de: translations(locale: "de") {
      key
      locale
      value
    }
    fr: translations(locale: "fr") {
      key
      locale
      value
    }
    variants(first: 1) {
      edges {
        node {
          metafield1: metafield(namespace: "custom", key: "main_color") {
            value
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

 

 

Could someone help me?

 

Thanks so much

Hi @egiuliani & @Kalen_Jordan 👋

 

To query translatable resources for metafields, you can specify the `resourceType` to be `METAFIELD`, or query them by the metafield ID:

{
    translatableResources(first: 3, resourceType: METAFIELD) {
        nodes {
            resourceId
            translatableContent {
                key
                value
            }
        }
    }
    translatableResourcesByIds(first: 5, resourceIds: [
        "gid://shopify/Metafield/123", 
        "gid://shopify/Metafield/456"
    ]) {
        nodes {
            resourceId
            translatableContent {
                key
                value
            }
        }
    }
}

 

For variant metafields, it would involve a 2 step process: 

 

1. fetch all the metafield IDs for the variants:

{
     productVariants(first:5) {
        nodes {
            metafield(namespace:"custom", key:"main_color"){
                 id
            }
        }
    }
}

 

2. then use the returned metafields in the `translatableResourcesByIds` query:

{
    translatableResourcesByIds(first: 5, resourceIds: [
        "gid://shopify/Metafield/123", ...
    ]) {
        nodes {
            resourceId
            translatableContent {
                key
                value
            }
        }
    }
}

Hope that helps!

I still have the same problem, does anyone have a solution? I need a way to extract metafield translations via API, translations are entered via Translate & Adapt

Thanks
