2. Installing the Weglot Shopify Translation App
To begin the translation process, you need to install the Weglot Shopify translation app from the Shopify app store. Simply search for "Weglot" and click on the app. Then, click on "Add App" and "Install App" to integrate Weglot into your Shopify store.
3. Creating a Weglot Account
After installing the Weglot app, you will be prompted to create a Weglot account. Creating an account grants you access to a 10-day free trial. If you already have an account, you can log in directly. Once logged in, click on "Create a New Project" and give your project a name, such as "Weglot App Test". Save your project to proceed to the next step.
4. Setting up a New Project
In this step, you need to select the original language of your website. For example, if your website is in English, select English as the original language. Next, choose the languages you want to add to your website. For instance, if you want to add French, search for it and click on "Add". Save your selections, and your multilingual website will now be live.
5. Adding Languages to Your Website
Weglot provides a first layer of machine translation for your website. However, you may want to manually edit certain translations to ensure accuracy. Through the Weglot dashboard, you can edit your store translations or even order professional translations. This flexibility allows you to cater to your international audience while maintaining high-quality content.
6. Editing Store Translations
To maintain linguistic and cultural accuracy, you can manually edit the translations provided by Weglot. Whether it's correcting grammar mistakes or adapting phrases to local customs, this step ensures that your translations resonate with your target audience. Additionally, by involving a team of trusted teammates, you can collaborate on improving the translations collectively.
7. Adding Teammates and Pro Translators
Teamwork can significantly enhance the translation process. With Weglot, you can add teammates to help with editing translations or assign the task to professional translators. By delegating the translation process, you can save time and ensure that your website's content is accurately localized.
8. Improving SEO with Weglot
Weglot understands the importance of SEO in reaching a wider audience. By translating your Shopify store, you gain the opportunity to optimize your website for different languages and countries. Through Weglot's dashboard, you can access SEO features and metadata translation options to enhance your website's visibility on search engines.
9. Adding Language Subdomains
For a fully localized and seamless user experience, you can add language subdomains to your website. These subdomains enable users to switch between languages effortlessly. To set up language subdomains, you need to access your domain name provider and manage your DNS settings. This process may vary depending on your provider, but the general steps involve adding a new CNAME entry and pointing it to the Weglot subdomain for the respective language.
10. Activating Subdomains for Multilingual SEO
After configuring the language subdomains, you need to activate them in your Shopify dashboard. In the Weglot section of your dashboard, navigate to the settings and click on "Go to Settings". Look for the option to enable subdomains and click on "Activate Subdomains". This step ensures that the language subdomains are functioning correctly and contributes to multilingual SEO.
11. Validating the Subdomains
Once the subdomains are activated, you need to validate them by clicking on "Enable Subdomains" and adding your domain URL. After entering the necessary details, click on "Next" to initiate the validation process. The validation may take a few minutes or up to 24 hours. If it exceeds 24 hours, you can reach out to Weglot's support team for assistance.
12. Refreshing Your Website
After completing the previous steps, it's time to refresh your website and witness the fully translated and localized version. Visit your website and use the language switcher to switch between languages. You should see that your website is now multilingual and ready to serve customers from different regions.
