How can I display local size formats for different markets on Shopify?

I was trying to find a solution for displaying sizes in specific regions in the local format. The Shopify Translate and Adapt app allows this.

 

You can export a spreadsheet to make bulk updates quickly however only if using two or more separate languages eg English > German

 

However it does not seem that you can download multiple variations of English for each market - for example US English or UK English. We would like to show the UK size to UK customers and the US size to US customers. You can manually edit these on the product page in the translate and adapt section. But with almost 15 markets manually doing this for thousands of products will be time consuming.

 

You can edit market prices with an import but I can't seem to work out if it is possible to upload these adaptions.

Hey @TFF001, can you please explain how the export and import work? I can not find this feature in the translate and adapt app from shopify.

Go to Settings > Languages > Export to use the Translations CSV

Any solution to this? I'm also facing the same issue.

Hi @TFF001 and @Yauman , there is a workaround here. It's to add a second language. You can leave it unpublished so that you don't have to 'use' it, but this enables you to export the CSV. Export all languages, then delete the rows with the locale of the extra language you've added. Then you'll see certain rows have a market alongside the language 'en' - these are the market customizations.
