Importing multiple languages (manual translation)

Solved

Hi,

 

This may be a very bad question, but how does my Shopify store "know" which language I am importing?

 

I am manually translating my shop into 3 languages and, as I receive the content from the translators, I am uploading the CSV file with the same name as it was exported. Is this correct? Or should I somehow indicate which file belongs to each language?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Vth,

 

Rich from Shopify here. Shopify knows which language by the 'Locale' column, which resource by the 'Identification' column and which field of that resource by the 'Field' column.

 

To your question:

I am uploading the CSV file with the same name as it was exported. Is this correct?

 

The task is to export the CSV and then put the translations in the 'Translated content' column. The locale column tells you which language goes where. For the CSV, you can remove rows but not columns. You can import multiple languages at once.

 

Hope that helps! Here for other questions.
