Shopify Markets: how to translate Product URLs?

Hello,

 

I'm testing Shopify Markets. I can see here that Porduct URLs can't be translated: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/markets/languages

 

However, we can now use international domain (.fr, .de...) https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/markets/international-domains

 

Is it possible to translate product name in Product URLs?

 

ie:

- shop.com/products/black-shoes

- shop.fr/products/chaussures-noires

 

This is vital for SEO and UX. If it's not possible yet - do you know any workaround, or deadline to implement this?

 

Thank you,

Antonin.

Hi @ARubens ,

 

It is said that Product URLs, such as /products/large-white-t-shirt, aren't translated and remain in the language that they were created in, even when a customer is viewing the site in another published language.

 

In Shopify, a product URL is mapped to the responding template liquid file.

 

I think the only workaround is that you build different stores for different languages.

Thanks, but with Shopify Markets and the push for international features, including international domains, I hope the Shopify team could share a deadline for this, or another workaround 🙂
