Global customers benefit from content written in their native language. Translating your store’s content can boost sales by improving international customers’ understanding of your marketing, product details, shipping, and return policies. This guide explains how to translate text in our Bundler app to allow better localization.

You will have to download an additional app from the Shopify app store. There are various apps, that can achieve this, but our team has found and tested two in particular: Lagnify and Weglot.

Both apps have their pros and cons, of which we will delve into in this article.

Langify

Lagnify allows you to manually translate your content and also supports automatic translations.The app offers local currency and target your customers directly. Also with great Third-Party App integrations and custom solutions. With more than 10 years on the market, Langify is also pretty popular among Shopify merchants.

4. Done!

You are done! Though, the app is not activated in your store. Follow the next steps to learn how to translate your store / subscription widget.

ENABLE LANGIFY IN YOUR THEME

Using Langify is our opinion the best way to translate only the widget, while keeping everything else untouched, It also doesn't have any compatibility issues with other apps in this case. There are some additional steps you need to take in the app to make it ready to use first, though.

Follow these instructions to get the app ready for translations:

  • Click on “Add new language” and select the desired translation language.
  • Make sure you enable it by clicking on the switch.

  • Enable Langify in your theme, by clicking on “Theme settings” and follow the instructions on screen.
     

  • Embed the app in your Shopify store.

  • Set up a language switcher, so your customers can switch between languages and access the translations. (We used the simple Native Dropdown, but you can customize it to your liking.)

  • Save changes and you are done!

TRANSLATE BUNDLER LANGIFY

Finally, we get to the stage, where we can translate Seal Subscriptions and it's subscription widget. Since the subscription widget text is entered manually by the user, it's a bit harder to translate using normal means, but using Langify might prove to be the most effective.

Here's how you translate the subscription widget of our app:

  • Go to the Langify homepage and click on “Custom.”

  • Click on “Product pages” and than select “Add new custom content.”

  • Enter the text you want to translate, for example: Buy in bulk and get a discount!.
  • A new window will appear, where you can compare your translations side-by-side. Enter the translated text on the right.

  • Repeat this for all the elements you'd like to translate.
  • Save changes and you are finished!
  • You can check out how it looks on your store, by opening a product page with a bundle currently active and using the switcher to select the translated language.

Weglot

Weglot is a fan favorite app, used by many users across multiple platforms like Shopify, WordPress, Webflow. It can also be used to translate additional elements of the subscription widget automatically.

PROS AND CONS OF USING WEGLOT

PROS
