Text export for translation

I want to have my entire webshop translated by a translation agency, but this company asks for an export of all texts in my webshop. Is there a way to export all the texts so that they can be translated and then imported again?

Hi @Miknenoek 
It's entirely feasible. Shopify provides built-in features for publishing translations, detailed in the official Shopify documentation: Shopify Translation Guide: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/markets/languages/translate
Moreover, you can further expand your store's multilingual capabilities by exploring diverse translation apps available on the Shopify App Store

I am aware of that, but the translations of the apps and shopify are mostly google translate based, And for the German market i think its really important that the language is native German.

Hey!

I get it, you want to make sure your German translations are spot on for your German market. While Shopify's built-in translation features and apps can be helpful, they don't always capture the nuance and cultural flair that a native speaker can bring.

To export your online store's text, you can try using Shopify's built-in export feature. Just select the relevant fields, like product titles, descriptions, and other important text fields. Then, you can hand it over to a translation agency, and they'll take care of translating it into native German.
