StoreHippo's multi-lingual e-commerce functionality lets you enable translations for your store. Translations feature is used to translate words or text from one language into another. Translations feature allows you to 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.
All translation in multi-lingual ecommerce platform 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.
You can also manually define the translation for the texts if you don't want to use the automatic translations. You can manage and create new translations in the Translation section of your dashboard.
If you wish to create the translation for a particular language manually, you can add new translation. For example, Home in English is converted to বাড়ি in Bangali.
