Blogs in multiple languages on different domains (the right way))

Hi all,

What I want: 

My blog posts translated in different languages on specific domains. So now I have all my blogs on my Dutch website. Example: shop.nl. And I want to translate my blogs on shop.com, shop.de, shop.es etc. (Mostly for affiliate marketing purposes. I won't sell in those countries right away: first affiliate marketing). 

Now I use a translation app, but that is absolutely noy helpful. The app creates cononical tags for all translated blogs and that means there is zero SEO-value. 

It is important that the blogs get a lang-ref in the metadata. 

It really looks like there is no convenient way in Shopify to do this.

  1. A translation app is horrible: it changes the content all the time and it is not indexible for Google.
  2. Creating a new shopify account for the specific language is also not optimal. It makes it hard and expensive to connect the lang-ref (there are apps for that) and if ever you want to sell your products in different countries, you will have to manually add/edit every product.

What would be a great way to manage this? I can imagine that there must be a way to centralize all content management with an external system like Channible. 

I really hope you guys can help out. Thanks!

If you use the Magefan blog app, you can translate blog posts directly in the backend manually. So you control what content is displayed. Besides, you can translate the same post for multiple languages. Here it is - https://magefan.com/shopify/apps/blog/translate-posts
