By default, PrestaShop is multilingual. You will quickly be able to create a multilingual store. The core of PrestaShop has already been translated into over 65 languages.

PrestaShop core translations cover typical text strings found in the front and back offices, as well as message errors, PDF files, and e-mail templates. However, if you want to create a fully translated and localized PrestaShop store, you’ll need to use the PrestaShop editor to translate all of the information.

Step-by-step guide:

1. Install language package

It is relatively simple to install a language pack in PrestaShop that includes not just translations, but also currencies, taxes, and units. Select a country and import a language pack by going to LOCALIZATION > Localization. You can also set the default language, country, and currency on the same page.

After installing the language pack, navigate to LOCALIZATION > Translations to view and edit translations.

2. Translating contents

The product catalogue and static pages are the most significant aspects of PrestaShop that must be translated. These materials must be rewritten in PrestaShop’s editor. You can disable languages in LOCALIZATION > languages if you don’t want translations to be displayed until they’re finished.

3. Translator profile in PrestaShop

PrestaShop allows you to create users that have a translator’s profile and can translate from the administration panel. The translator will have access to the content that needs to be translated, but not to any confidential information (customers, suppliers, sales, expenses, etc).

It’s rather simple to add a new translator: To add a new employee, go to ADMINISTRATION > EMPLOYEES > NEW EMPLOYEE. You can select the language from the admin panel when creating a PrestaShop profile (either logistician, translator, or salesman). Each user can also select a different language.

Setting the new profiles’ access privileges is the more difficult phase. This can be done by going to ADMINISTRATION > Permissions.

That’s it!

When compared to monolingual enterprises, multilingual retailers receive more visitors and have higher conversion rates. Larger traffic implies more marketing, which is critical for any internet business’s long-term success. With more languages, more individuals from all over the world can search for the things you have to offer, resulting in increased revenue.

It’s essential that you invest both time and money in high-quality translation services. This will keep you up to date on modern business practices. At K&J Translations we are here to help you ensure the highest quality translations, bringing your business to the next level.
