About Multi Lingo

What is Multi Lingo?

Multi Lingo is a professional translation tool. Multi Lingo allows you to create multi-language versions of any Shopify theme and lets you enter translations for products, pages, menu items, homepage texts, Email notifications, checkout and blog articles. Multi Lingo blends right in with Shopify's localization mechanism. On top of that Multi Lingo also supports automatic translations on a per-item basis through the Yandex translation engine.

How does it work?

Select the theme you want to use in the Multi Lingo App. A multi-language version of your theme is then being created and installed in your shop. Your original theme will remain untouched. Now you can enter translations for products, pages, collections, menu items, sections and blog articles. Theme-related translations are automatically integrated and don't need to be entered again. Create new languages directly in Multi Lingo and translate items automatically if you want.

Features

  • Create multi-language versions of any Shopify theme
  • Language specific URLs (e.g. /fr /de /en...)
  • Translate products, blogs, pages, sections, email notifications, checkout, collections and menus
  • SEO-related information (meta description, titles) is automatically localized based on the content of the current page
  • Languages included in your theme are instantly available in Multi Lingo
  • Translations for products, pages, articles, sections, collections and menus are available across all Multi Lingo themes and don't need to be entered again, making it super easy to switch between themes
  • Automatically adds a language selector to your theme. You can choose between 5 styles and 2 positions or just create your own
  • Directly link to any page in any of your languages by using a simple URL pattern
  • No setup or coding required
  • Supports translation of the checkout section INCLUDING product names
  • Supports translation of automated notification Emails
  • Use custom translatable variables throughout your shop (for app translations or custom localized conten, for example)
  • All translations are stored on your Shopify server - no third-party database access required
  • Optional automatic translations on a per-item basis for all items
  • Optional browser-language based redirection
  • Supports right-to-left text flow for Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu and all other RTL scripts

Please note: Multi Lingo does not automatically translate your whole website!

Multi Lingo allows you auto-translate all items in your shop but you have to manually initiate the translation for each item individually!

Before you read this review, understand that I never want to leave a bad review to anyone. And as a small business, we're EXTREMELY busy. But I took time to write this and hope it would be helpful to someone. I have been using this app for about 2 years. The reason I chose it was, it was the only app at that moment which let users manually translate. Because of this, my colleague (who was in charge of building the website before me) and I had to tolerate this HORRIBLE customer service. We've been trying hundreds of apps, both paid and free ones, but for customer support, I would say this is THE WORST ever! He always responded very fast, extremely fast, but very rude and always in the mood like "I don't want to help you, I just want to finish this ticket soon". He always made my colleague and me feel uncomfortable when talking with him. He's not willing to help, and sometimes asking why he has to do that. There was one time we got troubles with the app, but he said he was not able to replicate the issue on his end. That sounds weird to us because the fact that the issue is still occuring on our website, so we asked him if he can show us a video showing that he didn't see the issue, but he ignored that request. That was just an example. Honestly, I've been talking with about a hundred of apps so far, even the FREE apps, they offer MUCH BETTER support than this one! One more weird thing about this app. Everytime we got issues with the app and asked for support, if he cannot resolve it, he would say "you don't need to use my app". So rude and unprofessional, right? NOW I'M HAPPY THAT I DON'T NEED TO USE THIS APP ANYMORE! I think he'll try to say something to give offense to this negative review (reading his reply on other negative reviews and you'll understand how it would) . --> If you are looking for an app that lets you manually translate, go for Translation Lab or the app of Hextom (I forgot the name). They're new but growing very fast, because they're both great, and excellent customer services. (And they're Free, too) . Hope this helps!

Not every app is suitable for every merchant.

This merchant started using my app almost 2 years ago and wanted to save the app subscription fees by installing the app, adding translations and then uninstalling the app again - before the free trial ends (a total of 5 times before I told them that I would no longer support this behavior). All the while still asking for my support.

This pretty much sums up the attitude of the merchant throughout the whole time they used my app. I just quickly counted - this merchant sent me more than 200 Emails (I stopped counting at 180).
There is a limit to what service I can reasonably offer to support my app. This merchant was always absolutely unreasonable in their requests and expectations.

I felt that my app was not the right match for the merchant from the start and I told them this very clearly multiple times throughout the two-year period they used my app. Yet, they always ignored it.

Quotes from January 2020:

I think my app maybe not the right solution for you. Maybe there is a translation app which is better suited to your needs.

Reply of merchant:
So far so good. Except for sometime it causes issue like the discount code issue now. Can’t you fix it?

I have never said this before but I was really relieved that this merchant finally uninstalled my app (of course not after asking for a refund for the last billing cycle which I granted).
Definitely one of the most unpleasant experiences in my four+ years on Shopify.

We have been using this app for a few months now and we highly recommend it! Thorsten has been really quick to help resolve issues with much professionalism and efficiency. The app is easy to use and can translate an unlimited amount of pages and products. Without a doubt, one of the best translation apps out there!
