Hi there,

 

We're suffering an issue when using Translate and Adapt to translate from English to Chinese.

 

We have managed to use Translate and Adapt to translate most of our site apart from:

Product search / filter left column
- Product type (individual types)
- More filters (individual filters)

 

Product view

- Product type (individual types)

 

Appreciate any help!

 

Thanks,

Adam

Hi all, some good news: as of today both custom filter labels and custom filter values / filters from Search & Discovery app are translatable. More here. Please try, and feed back with any issues! Rich

Hey @adamzog , sorry to hear you've run into a limitation. Please let me know the store either here or by DM, but I believe it's likely the case that it's because product types are not currently a translatable resource, and filter translations are not showing due to Shopify platform level constraints that are being worked on. There may be a workaround, which is to translate in the front end with a 3P app. Rich

Hi Rich, thank you for your reply!

 

This is the site we're working on- https://neotoys-7085.myshopify.com/collections/all-products

 

Understood about the APP, I think we can use it as a last resort, however, is there a fix where we can translate in the CSS?

Hi Richbrown! 
Is there any news about the filters translations within translate & adapt app ? 
These are 2 apps from shopify. Do you plan to integrate these together soon ? 

 

Thanks for your help!

Hey Staff!

I looked at the documented link and can see the filter names as localizable, but I can't see how to localize (if at all possible) the values.

I have a filter for the Product Type, which appears in English but doesn't appear at all in French. Is the "Product Type" filter excluded from this functionality?

Thanks!

Hi @jflottawa , yes unfortunately Product Type is not currently available. This is being looked at but the Search & Discovery team. Would a metafield workaround work for you?

Thank you,

Unfortunately, I would have to do double data entry for each product.
Hopefully this is something that is extended soon.

Could it be possible to make the "product_type" string field translatable by means of a GraphQL mutation just like the "title" and the "body_html" string fields?

I only see the filter label in Translate & Adapt. I don't see any of the filter values. Do I have to do something to make them translatable?
