Magento Language Switcher: For Seamless Language Translation

by Maulik Shah Owner

With around 7,111 languages across the world, you can’t miss out on providing language translation feature on your site. Because with only one language, you can’t maximize your reach to people in different countries. 

However, language translation doesn’t suffice alone. It should also be accurate, efficient and easy-to-manage. Or else it won’t be of much value to you or your customers. 

Many plugins, using Google API, can provide you with this feature. But what most of these plugins don’t provide is edit translation feature.

However, such is not the case with the Magento 2 Language Switcher extension. It not only fetches translations from Google API but also lets you edit them. It uses WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor to help you stay on top of translation management. You can see and control the translation of every single word that goes before customers. Also, importing and exporting files easily is also possible with this plugin. 

Let’s read on the features of this extension in detail. And understand how they come in handy for you. 

Highlight Features of Magento Language Switcher

  • Backend Control

Integrating this extension with your site’s backend gives you full control of the translations of your Content. First, Google API translates selected content in the language you prefer, then lets you make changes in the final content using the WYSIWYG editor. This way, you show your customers only what you want them to see. This assures that the final content on your site is error-free and unambiguous. 

  • No Automated Switching 

Google API leads to automated switching of the language of your content. However, Google API based results may be a far cry from the actual meaning sometimes. And this may lead to confusion in understanding content for visitors on your site. 

However, with this extension, it is possible to prevent such confusion. It prevents IP-based translations giving your customers the freedom to choose the language-specific store view of the website. Hence, you can make the most out of the powerful combo of this plugin and Google API.

  • Mass Translation on the Spot

No more depending on Cron to perform translation tasks. Rather, translate site content in bulk with simple commands in Console. Save efforts and time with this feature. 

  • View Translation Status

Be in full control of translations in the backend. View everything, like the translation status of every product, mode of translation (Console or Cron), the language of the content you are translating and that of the one you will translate it to.

Simply add translations to complete and leave the rest to the translator. Don’t worry anymore about every single translation taking place. Rather, view details of every translation taking place in the backend and manage them easily. 

  • Search and Translate

Don’t wade through all the content to find what you want to translate. Rather, use the ‘Search and Translate’ feature to find exactly what you want to translate. This saves your time and effort. 

  • Daily Transaction Quota

To control the amount of translation per day, you can now set a daily translation limit. This is possible With Language Translator. And you don’t need to count translations manually to monitor translation expenses daily. This plugin will do everything for you and saves you money too.

The translations above the daily translation limit go to the list of translations for the next day.

  • Translate Not Just Web Content 

With Language Translator, you don’t need to limit your translation to only web pages. Unlike Google API

alone, it gives you the freedom to translate everything on your website. Be it product reviews, detail pages, or category pages; this module translates them all. Hence, this extension is a way to translate beyond web pages effortlessly. 

To Sum Up: Magento 2 Multi-Language Support Extension
