Shopify Translate & Adapt , 351 recensies
The auto translate feature is incredibly simple and intuitive to use, however it has a hard cap on just 2 languages which doesn't make much sense to me. I was hoping to offer a few languages for my EU customers. I don't understand why there is such a limit in place to only support two languages, I would gladly pay like $10 to translate the rest of my site to add German and French support... it feels pretty unfair to only offer Spanish and Italian in my opinion, not a good look for my store.
Together with Shopify Markets this app could be a 10/5 stars. Unfortunately, it's not possible to translate more than 2 languages automatically, which is a big bugger to us since we want to do a Europe wide rollout with our shop. We would be willing to pay for every additional language, for sure, but even this is not yet possible. Is there a date when this super important feature will be released? As soon as this is possible, we'll increase our rating for sure!
I think this is really good function wise. It does the translations super quick and its easy to read your original text to the translated text as well as to fix it. However, translations always seem to work better in google going from another language to English and not the other way around. I am translating to Swedish and my husband ( who is swedish) still has to rewrite almost everything to really localize it so it really sounds correct. I would really prefer an app that has that local touch. When amazon opened in sweden they did an AI translate for swedish and it landed in the news bc it they translated a necklace or something into the word for a male private part or something rediculous like that. I mean no one needs that to happen for their small business. So overall, its a good app with a good base but if you wanna be local you gotta go to local to get it right.
Thanks for the review and taking the time to work with the app. Translations themselves come from a Google Translate integration which means we don't control the text, but aim to give the opportunity to amend what comes back. I can relate - my store sells 'sloth necklaces' which translate as 'lazy necklaces'! As Google Translate continues to improve over time, the quality of auto-translations will continue to get better. Whilst it's taken longer than you'd hoped, the way you've done it - auto-translating and correcting, is a great way to go about things.
Pretty good but still needs some work. A few things I've noticed, there's no bulk translate option for single words. We sell car parts in the UK and launched a US store. The only things that need translating are things like Bonnet to Hood, Wing to Fender etc. There's no way to do this without going into every instance where it occurs. It would be so easy to do if I could just change all instances of "colour" to "color" and "boot" to "trunk".
There's also a few areas where it's still missing. One example is shipping. There's nowhere to translate your shipping names so you need to create new rates for each language you use. It's not a big issue but could be better.
Hi there- thanks for trying the app and the review. It would be worth combining your Translate & Adapt workflows with the translations CSV (Settings > Languages > Export). This exports all your translations, which are the same translations that are visible and editable in Translate & Adapt. You can find and replace in a spreadsheet, and delivery methods are there under DELIVERY_METHOD_DEFINITION.
I think the result of auto-translation is quite acceptable. But not having the option to select multiple or all products to translate at once is painful, especially when you have 100+ products to translate into more than 1 languages..
And also not sure what happens when a product description or any content is updated?
Hi there, thanks for trying out the app. Stores can be translated entirely in one go, and unedited auto-translations will update if the default content is updated.

Pretty good except that you can't search in ALL text.
you need to know where your content is located before you search, which you often don't.
Also missing translation of Shopify Reviews
Thanks for the review and for trying the product! Short term use the CSV (Settings > Languages > Export) but search is coming very soon!
It works well, but it does not translate the content that is generated via a Website Builder such as Gempages.Is there a workaround to this other than paying premium on third party apps ?
Translate & Adapt has access to 3rd party apps that store content inside Shopify and are integrated with the Translation API. If an app doesn't store it within Shopify the app can't access the data to translate. Shopify strongly recommends partners to integrate with the APIs because it means they can support new features that roll out which increase reliability, speed, security and features adoption.
Translate & Adapt is working with Pagefly though, so you can maybe try that. Alternatively some merchants prefer to operate two language apps side by side, as some apps have the capability to translate content in the front end. We don't recommend that as translating in the front end means that some logic such as localization to a specific market may be broken. Still that is a way to make it work.
The app seems fine to me, but for the moment I haven't left it installed because it doesn't take all my translations into account. I'm on Transcy, I have 4 translated languages and would love to switch to Transclate and Adapte. But it's going to take me hours to check every product and every page. Perhaps you have a solution?
Am I missing something? Why only allowed to translate 2 languages? While the app did a great job of translating the two languages I chose, it was disheartening to see so little variety.
Translate & Adapt allows for 2 auto translated languages. You can translate up to 20 languages manually (that's 18 languages more). There is a cost associated with letting merchants auto-translate and that is the reason why it is limited. We are looking options to pay for additional languages similarly to other translation apps in the Shopify ecosystem. Translate & Adapt is the only app that lets you auto translate whole 2 languages for free.
We have seen merchants who want to auto translate more language and are using other apps or Translate & Adapt in addition to other apps.
A decent app but rather complex to use and long loading times. However, lately the saving process hangs a lot and you are forced to reload the page and rewrite the translations. Really frustrating.
