update Importing translations
We’ve added a new option to the import feature located in the Translations List section of the Weglot Dashboard. When you upload a CSV or XLIFF file with your edited translations, you’ll now see a new option to toggle on or off if the file includes translations that haven’t been changed from the ones exported from the Translations List.
For instance, if you’re importing your translations and you have not made edits to some of the automatic translations but you’re happy for them to be displayed on your website, you can toggle on the option ‘Mark unchanged translations as reviewed’. This means they will now be displayed as a ‘Manually edited translation’ in your Translations List.
If you don’t wish to do that, then keep the toggle off. Those translations will remain as an ‘Automatic translation’ in your Translations List.
We’ve also made a couple of other small updates:
- Emojis are now better handled in XLIFF and CSV imports
- The type of content e.g. text, media, meta SEO are now clearly marked in your translation exports
update Easier media translation through the Visual Editor
For those editing through the Visual Editor, we’ve now made it easier to make a change to your media files.
Simply hover over an image/video and click on the blue pencil icon to replace the media file and to edit the alt text translation. You no longer need to add the media file through your Translations List first.
update Shopify App
We’ve updated the Weglot Shopify translation app for an improved user experience. You can now use subdomains to display the translated versions of your store (e.g. https://fr.mywebsite/).
This is particularly appealing for store owners who want an improved localization experience for their customers as the subdomains will now be visible to human visitors, instead of only bots.
If you’re already using the Weglot Shopify app you’ll need to make a change in the DNS records of your domain name provider (you can watch our tutorial videos on how to do that).
Essentially, you’ll need to create a CNAME entry with the 'host' as the 2 letter language code of the language you’ve added to your store, and then point it to websites.weglot.com.
After you’ve done that, return to your Weglot App settings in the Shopify dashboard and follow the simple setup instructions once you’ve clicked ‘Activate subdomains.’
When you add a translation rule to the Weglot Glossary such as ‘Always Translate’ along with your chosen word or term, any time the translation appears in your Translations List, it will now be marked as a ‘Manual edited translation’.
