Translations are used to translate words or text from one language into another. Translations allow you to only configure the translation of the static text on your store themes. StoreHippo provides support for translations for data in Standard entities like Products, Categories etc. as well as translation of messages displayed on the store.
Translation is done by using Google Translate API. As the user selects the preferred language on the store, it will change the specified text in the store to that language and add it to the database of the store by using Google Translate API. The Google Translate API is enabled by default in your stores.
