Translations in entities

StoreHippo's multi-lingual e-commerce functionality lets you enable entity translations for your store. Entity translations allow you to configure the translation of the field text on your admin panel.

Translation is done by using Google Translate API as well as by manually defining the text.

The Google Translate API is enabled by default in your stores. 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. 

If you want to add translations manually to the entities, you can do it by providing the translated values of the fields. Click on the ellipsis button in the top right corner and choose translations from the drop-down while adding a record in a particular entity. 

You can provide translations for the following entities:

To make your store multi-lingual, you first have to add languages and then manage translations from a particular entity.
