Translation: paid 3rd-party apps vs free native CSV solution

Hi there, 

I am in the process of manually translating my website from English to German. I started the translation using Langify but I then noticed that it was also possible to translate a Shopify website exporting a CSV file with all the original text, adding the translation to it and then importing it back. All of that for free, without using an app. https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/cross-border/multilingual-online-store 

Beside the more user-friendly process of using a 3rd-party app like Langify, is there any other benefits? Because I would be definitely ready to compromise on the user-friendliness if I can then save USD 15-25 per month...

Many thanks in advance for your feedback!

Export xml file from Shopify then find a freelancer in Germany to help you translate, then upload to shopify, it will be more professional.

Hi did you work out how to translate the CSV? I am looking to translate my store from English. When I download the CSV it downloads HTML code and I am unsure what needs translating and what does not?

 

Thanks in advance.
