How does langify improve the business of your store?



shopify is a great platform but lacks support for multilingual storefronts.

Because of that, store owners have to stick with one language at all times. clients, on the other hand, shop from all around the world and expect your store to be available in their preferred language.

That said, a lot of potential customers might leave your store if they are not:


  • redirected to a storefront matching their preferred language

  • provided with an option to switch to their preferred language.

langify fills that gap by allowing store owners to easily provide multilingual storefronts including the following features:



  • Automatic language detection (customers will be redirected to their preferred language automatically)

  • Customizable language switcher (customers can choose their preferred language manually)

  • Multiple domains per language (translated storefronts can be hosted on specific domains)

  • Full SEO support including the translation of Meta Tags (when using multiple domains per language)

  • Import/Export of translations (CSV, gettext, XLIFF, JSON)

  • Support for all kind of languages including Right-To-Left languages

  • Image translation support


    • Simple setup:



      langify has been built with simplicity in mind.
      After you have installed langify you can start translating instantly without having to prepare your themes for translations.
      langify is smart enough to extract all translatable content from your shop and prepares your themes so your translations can be displayed.

      Translate your content:


      Simply create one or more languages and start translating your

      • Vendors and Tags

      • Page Title

      • Page Description


      Please note that the products cannot be translated on the checkout page and in your notifications and will always show up in your base language for those sections. Custom shipping/payment texts cannot be translated on the checkout page either.


      Publish your translations:



      Once you are ready, publish your translations with a few simple clicks.

      Translate into as many languages as you want:



      langify does not put a limit on the amount of languages you can translate into.

      Import/Export your translations



      langify currently supports the following file formats:


      • CSV

      • PO/MO (gettext)

      • XLIFF

      • JSON


      Support for internationalized themes



      langify allows you to import existing theme translations from shopify.

      SEO support


      Multiple domains per language (optional):



      langify allows you to assign multiple domains to your languages. You can have your French content available at fr.myshop.com or myshop.fr (or even both) whereas your English content is available at myshop.com.


      Translate your meta tags:



      langify allows you to translate your title and description tags so that Google, Facebook, Twitter and Co. will be able to preview your translations correctly.

      Please have a look at geolizr if you are looking for an IP/GEO based location service that allows you to display notifications, popups, currencies, etc. based on your visitor's location (it's a great addition to langify).

I'm using Langify for quit a long time! And must say this is truly the best option if you need to add several languages to your store. Simple and user-friendly interface of the admin page, fast and really helpful support service. This guys can not only tell you what to do but they can do everything for you. Thank you guys for your work! 5 stars!

Langify is a super easy to use app and it fully exceeds my expectations.

Extremely powerful app: It has all translation features: product, vendors, pages, hero images,etc. translations, as well as different styles of language switchers, custom translations in case some are not being translated, translation backup, etc. and so far I have used all these features. None of them is useless!

UI is really user friendly: As a robust translation app, langify has tons of features but Johannes is not only a dev. but also a really good organizer --- all features are easy to find and It just took me very short time to get along with the UI.

SEO friendly: Not many people know that without sub domain, SEO wont work. I have checked around all other langify's customers' shop and only a few are having sub domain to enable translated content SEO. With Johannes' help, I quickly set up my sub domain and enabled the SEO with sub domain and now I feel really happy that google can capture my content not only for English!!

Auto-detect language: This is another nice feature from this app. I realize that some people may leave right away if they are not seeing their preferred language. This totally avoid the issue even though it does not work quite well for mobile devices.

Amazing support: I have to admit this is langify's 2nd signature dish. Johannes is a very professional, patient and responsive person unlike those so called shopify gurus. He is always taking time to read my concerns and problems. This is making himself and langify successful and creates huge different from those shopify gurus who never bother to read and just kick the ball back to app dev. I always receive correct and quick answers/solutions within 1 day, no matter it is just a general questions or coding relevant issues. Johannes is also willing to resolve any incompatibility between langify and any other apps.

Pricing: My team had thought of buying langify as our 1st paid app and done a lot of research of its features and reviews to see if it can satisfy our translation needs. Now we are all happy with langify and think its price is reasonable and it is totally worth the money.

Cons:
Not much, but still want to point out just for improvement purpose:

Langify is kind of slow most of time, this may be because langify's server is located far away from Canada. But this never becomes a big deal to my work.

Langify does have a support page/forum where all app user can communicate, but it does not seem to mention anywhere else within the app page. Here it is:
http://support.langify-app.com/support/home

Lastly, thank you Johannes for providing such nice app, hope this review can help people to know more about langify, and I wish Johannes has every success in his career/real life.

Due to Shopify's lack of multi-lingual support, site translation becomes a headache. We looked at many options, but determined that Langify is the most professional of them all. This app turns the complicated task of translating all aspects of our store into a reality. It covers not only the products and pages, but all the shopify features and internal functions. Plus, the support from the developer is the best of all the apps I've used. He really goes the extra mile to make things happen and work properly.

An essential app to our multilingual store. Easy to install and to publish translations. Johannes has supported us all the way, can't count how many times I've emailed him way past business hours just to receive a full answer in a couple minutes. He cares about offering a great app and great service and we thank him for that!

Langify does all that it needs to do. I have my store in two different languages and I could avoid making the second one from scratch. Johannes is amazing. He always answers super quickly and is very knowledgeable. His help is invaluable and this makes Langify an even greater tool to use.

We made a really large, demanding store which needed multi-lingual features throughout and this app handled it beautifully. We needed support on a few occasions and it was always extremely rapid, friendly and effective. Thank you!
