Hey @danielb5426 , Translate & Adapt uses Shopify's native Translations API.

Hi Richbrown, that makes sense, however Translate & Adapt has an "auto-translate" feature, which as far as I'm aware is not in Shopify's native Translation API? Is there a way to access this, so you could via the API invoke the auto-translate feature on some content? Whether than requiring manual intervention?

Hey @RobinKZ , you're right - auto-translate is a feature of the Translate & Adapt app, not the API. We send content from the app to Google. To translate content from the API without an app you'd need to make something that sends the default content to a translation tool, then registers those translations against the API (which is what T&A does). I've seen one merchant make their own tool using https://www.knime.com/ and there's also a way of translating without an app I put together here that uses the CSV. You could perhaps use the same principles for your use case.

Understood, sounds like I need to build my own app that integrates with ChatGPT or another system that can auto-translate for me if I want to automate the entire process. Could be an interesting project.

Keep us posted, would love to see it. Might be something that could work with Shopify Flow?
