Hi, I'm looking for an app or solution.

I want to be able to use a metafield as translation for another metafield and I can't seem to find anything like that. I use Channel Engine to import data to Shopify, this includes the metafields, don't know if this is important.

 

Does anybody know what my best options are now?

Hello @username12,

 

Great question about using metafields for translations in Shopify. There isn't a straightforward feature for this, but here are a few ideas:

 

  1. Custom Development: A tailor-made app could link one metafield to another for translation purposes. This requires some coding but offers the most flexibility.

  2. Shopify Apps: Check out translation apps in the Shopify App Store. While they primarily focus on standard fields, some might offer metafield compatibility.

  3. Automation Tools: Shopify Flow or similar automation tools could be configured to copy data between metafields. It's a bit manual but could work.

Hi @KabirDev,

Thanks for the reply.

 

Could I maybe, instead of using Channel Engine, use the Shopify API to directly add the translation of a metafield?

Hi @username12,

Absolutely, you can use the Shopify API to directly add translations to a metafield. This approach offers more control and can be tailored to your specific needs.
