How to translate your theme?

This is a guideline on how to translate the language in your Shopify store in the Kalles theme.
By default, each Shopify store can only use a single translation file at one time. Currently, Shopify themes are in English, and some themes have more than one language option. In this article, I will guide you to translate online stores into Single language (except English) and Multi-language.

1. Single Language

To translate your theme to another language please follow these steps:
Step 1: Change the Published languages
You need to click on Settings -> Languages -> Change the Published languages that you want to change the Language.
Change Default Language
Step 2: Update the translation file
Please click on Online Store -> Themes -> Actions -> Edit default theme content
Edit default theme content
Step 3: Translate the theme
You can translate manually for each element.

2. Multi-language

To sell in multiple languages, you need to have the following:
Step 1: Install the Geolocation app by Shopify.
Install Geolocation App
Step 2: Add Markets of the country to that you want to add the language.
Please click on Shopify Settings -> Markets -> Add the country you want to sell.
Step 3: Add Languages.
You need to click on Shopify Settings -> Languages -> Add Language then assign it for the Markets selling and Public Language.
Step 4: Translate with the Translate App.
There are many Translation Apps on Shopify, but we recommend that Kalles users should use T Lab ‑ AI Language Translate. In the process of working, I noticed that customers choose this app quite a lot and support quickly.

Step 5: Add translation file into Theme Code.
Please click on Edit Code -> Find the Locales -> Add translation file such as ar.json, de.json, it.json.
Then you will translate manually or use the 3rd translation app.
