Can the template support languages other than English? How to change text?

Yes, the template can now support languages other than English. 

How it works

  1. When the customers visit the BYOB bundle page, the app will detect the active language of your store
  2. If the locale is supported, the corresponding language will be displayed
  3. Otherwise, the page always falls back to display English

How to change the text in another language:

1. For Liquid template users:

You can add language translations using the Translate & Adapt app

  1. Visit the language editor via the BYOB settings => Change Text
  2. Hit the localize button in the language editor

  3. Visit the section and change the text

    For more info, please refer to Add language translations using the Translate & Adapt app

  4. If the text is available for the secondary language, you still have to make a tiny change (like adding a space) to make the text effective. After that, hit the save button in the Translate & Adapt app.

2. For theme app extension users:

At this moment, Shopify doesn't support changing texts in the theme app extension. Shopify is trying to add the missing feature but there is no confirmed timeline yet. As a workaround, you can add a custom liquid section.

  1. Hit Change Design in BYOB. In the theme editor, add the new BYOB Custom Messages section before other app blocks

  2. Visit BYOB settings => Change text/template content. You'll able to change the text in the Shopify language editor

Supported languages:

  • English
  • Japanese
  • Spanish
  • Traditional Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Polish

You can change the translation in the Shopify Language Editor. Just visit BYOB => Settings => Change Text. You'll be redirected to the language editor in the Shopify admin.

The translation format:

  1. {quantity} is the variable we put in. Include {VARIABLE} in your translation
  2. the pipe | is for pluralization, the left side is a single unit, and the right side is for multiple units
