StoreHippo offers comprehensive Multilingual ecommerce functionality for its stores. Using this you can allow your customers to view your store in the language of their choice.
You can choose a language for your theme which is used in translations.
To manage languages in your store, go to Settings > Languages section in StoreHippo Admin Panel.
If no language is selected, then English is added by default in your Admin panel. You can unpublish the English language, but can not delete it. If the English language is unpublished and all published languages are either deleted or unpublished, then English language gets published automatically.
To add a language, click on Add New button. Clicking on the Add new button opens the form with the following fields:
Select the desired language from the drop-down.
The code is automatically generated when you select a language.
Unselect the flag, if you want to unpublish the language. By default, the flag is checked.
Click on Choose File to upload the image of the flag of the selected country in case you want to display the flag on the storefront.
There are various languages supported in the StoreHippo multilingual ecommerce platform. The list of the supported languages is given below:
|Language Name||Code||Language Name||Language Code|
All StoreHippo themes support multiple languages. You can manage translations for your Store Themes, Product Data as well as Messages on your store.
We have found that displaying the flag on language might create issues for users because one language is used by various countries. For example, English is the language of many countries and thus displaying multiple flags corresponding to that language would affect the user experience for the site.
