I understand from some search its not possible to translate the dynamic checkout button text "Buy it Now" to other languages - it will always be in english language whatever language you have in the shop - is that correct?

Hey, all!

 

Jason from Shopify Support. At the moment, the Theme Support team can't edit the language on the dynamic checkout button. The feature's code comes directly from Shopify's core system, so the customization has to be done by the developers. If any customizations were made for one store, it would affect every store. 

 

The currently supported languages for dynamic checkout buttons are:

 

  • Portuguese-Brazil 
  • Portuguese 
  • Spanish 
  • Italian 
  • French 
  • English 
  • Dutch 
  • German 
  • Danish 
  • Japanese

 

Note: The "More payment options" button is currently only supported in English.

 

For the dynamic checkout buttons language requests: If you wish to translate the button other than the language listed, feel free to share your request here with your .myshopify.com URL and the language you need. To reduce the thread's length and avoid repetitive responses, I may not reply to every single request post. Instead, I will mark "Like" on the post, so you know your request has been submitted already.

I'm actively monitoring this thread and I promise to forward every single one of your requests up to our development team. Thank you all for the valuable feedback. Your patience and understanding are much appreciated!

 

Best,

Jason

 Hey, Terje!

 

Jason here from Shopify Support. Thank you for reaching out!

 

You can change the language of the dynamic checkout button by changing your theme's language. For instance, when I switch the theme's language to French, the dynamic checkout button also switches to French.

As long as your theme supports the language, you can switch the theme's language by Shopify admin > Online Store > Themes > Actions > Edit Languages. Just right below the heading, click on Change theme language.

A popup window will show you which language is available on the theme. Keep in mind that in order to switch language, the theme has to be published first. 08_21-4ndr3-wwhth 

Please note: If you have the theme's language set in French and the customer has an English browser, it's still going to be showing in French. The button isn't responsive to the browser's language.

 

I hope this information helps, however, should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reply back here and I'd be happy to help out!

 

All the best,
Jason

Hi thanks,

 

I understand but I have made a Norwegian translating of my Minimal theme - that is sadly not standard. Why I not understand when you have both Swedish and Danish and Norway is the country that shop most on internet in Scandinavia. Anyway how can I change the dynamic button text? I can see it in F12 html code but not find it when searching the code in Shopify also not in languages.

Hey,

 

Is there any other way to accomplish this as of yet? I'm running Out of The Sandbox's Turbo theme in Finnish and can't find a way to make the dynamic checkout button appear in Finnish.

Hey, @37berntsen!

 

I've sent an email to you with ticket #13859307 but never heard back. Unfortunately, Norwegian isn't listed as one of the languages currently available to translate to. That being said, I've passed your request to our development team, in the hope that soon they can add this language to the translation in the core system. Keep an eye out on the translation process offered in this post. The languages available will expand with time. 

 

Best,

Jason

Hi Jason,

 

We are also on Out of The Sandbox's Turbo theme and would like to have the dynamic checkout button appear in Finnish.

Hey, @Nickano!

 

Jason here from Shopify support. 

 

Unfortunately, Finnish isn't part of the languages available for the translation. I've gone ahead and launched a feature request with our developers to see if Finnish can be added in the future. While I can't guarantee that it will be added, if the request is already there, I can add to it to bump it up - as the more merchants that mention a feature, the more likely they are to be implemented.

 

Best,

Jason

Hi @JasonC! Can you please help me with translation of the dynamic button text in Turkish? I'm also stuck on this 😞

Hey, @ThaoNguyen02!

 

Thanks for the shoutout. 

 

I did a quick check. Unfortunately, Turkish isn't one of the languages available for translation. That being said, our development team is actively working on expanding the languages offering. Kindly keep an eye open on your admin home cards. The newest updates or language expansion notification will show up there when it becomes available for you. 

 

In the meantime, I've filed your suggestion to our development team, letting them know that you're requesting Turkish to be added as one of the languages for the dynamic checkout button. Thank you for letting us know your request.

 

Best,

Jason

Hey, @37berntsen and @Michael-L!

 

The new language rollout doesn't have an expected timeframe. That being said, I've checked with the development team and they've confirmed that it is in the planning stage. Thank you for your patience with us while we work on this request.

 

I've gone ahead and forwarded your request to the team on your behalf, Michael. Thanks for the feedback. 

 

Best,

Jason
