By default, each Shopify store can only use a single translation file at one time. Currently, Shopify themes are in English, and some themes have more than one language option. In this article, I will guide you to translate online stores into Single language (except English) and Multi-language.

1. Single Language

To translate your theme to another language please follow these steps:

Step 1: Change the Published languages

You need to click on Settings -> Languages -> Change the Published languages that you want to change the Language.

Step 2: Update the translation file

Please click on Online Store -> Themes -> Actions -> Edit default theme content


Step 3: Translate the theme

You can translate manually for each element or create a ticket on the support system, our support team will help you import a translation file for your language.


For more information, you can follow this document of Shopify.

2. Multi-language

To sell in multiple languages, you need to have the following:

  • A theme that's compatible with selling in multiple languages. (Our themes are compatible with selling in multiple languages.)

  • A compatible third-party translation app to translate your content.

Step 1: Add the Markets of the country to that you want to add the language.

Please click on Shopify Settings -> Markets -> Add the country you want to sell.
