Just to clarify, are you wanting to translate your theme or Shopify Admin into German?
Although Shopify themes are in English, some themes have more than one language option. These themes include translations of all of the text content in your online stores, such as contact information and cart and checkout information.
For themes that include multiple languages, you can simply change the theme language. If your theme doesn't have the language that you want, then you can create the translations yourself. You can only have one language active on your online store.
If you would like to offer multiple languages, you have the option to use a language app like Langify:
If you would like to change the admin language to one of our supported options, you can do so by heading to the Settings > Accounts (or Plans and permissions) > Staff account section of your admin.

If you are unable to see the language option within the staff account settings, you can opt-in instead here:
