1. Translation Methods

LangShop for Magento 2 gives you multiple options for translating your store content, performed by: 

  • Standard AI translation engines - 5 different engines run translation. LangShop compares results and displays the most popular one. It’s the fastest and easiest way to translate your website.

The advantage of this method is that you don’t need to manually copy/paste text, as the plugin integrates with the engines via API key. All you have to do is to select the pages you want to translate from the list, and click the Translate button.
  • Professional translation agency - LangShop for Magento 2 has an integration with TextMaster, a professional translation agency. It allows you to order translations performed by native speakers right from LangShop admin. You don’t need to export and upload content manually - just select the pages/elements you want to translate, fill out the order and pay for it. The translation will be performed in 48-72 business hours and sent for your approval. Once you approve it, it will be automatically uploaded to your store.
  • Manual editing mode - you can always opt for manual translation if you prefer to have more control over the final result.

2. Translatable Elements

LangShop for Magento 2 can translate various elements of your online store, including: 

  • Products - product information such as descriptions, specifications, and features are critical in helping customers make informed purchasing decisions. By translating this information into different languages, merchants can provide customers with a localized and personalized experience, increasing their chances of making a sale.
  • Categories - translating categories on an online store can greatly improve the navigation experience for foreign visitors. By providing categories in their native language, customers can easily find what they are looking for and are more likely to stay on the site longer, leading to a higher chance of making a purchase.
  • Attributes - this includes not only translating product attributes such as color, size, and material, but also translating the layered navigation used to search and sort products.
  • Third-party extensions - By translating modules, merchants can customize various parts of their store to fit the needs of their customers. This includes localizing elements such as the checkout, the customer area, and various buttons and options.

As you can see, LangShop for Magento 2 can translate almost all store content. Hence, it ensures that your store visitors will have a seamless and consistent experience, regardless of the language they speak.

3. Glossary

LangShop allows you to create a custom glossary of terms that you want to be translated in a certain way or won’t be translated at all. This helps you maintain the same tone and style in your translations, no matter which method you choose.

4. Translation Suggestions

For AI machine translation, 5 different translation engines work. However, they can offer different translations of the same word or phrase. In this case, LangShop selects the most popular variant, but saves the other options as translation suggestions. This makes the translation process even more efficient and saves you time, as you don't have to start from scratch.
