Magento Language Translation Extension

One of the most important aspects of choosing a Magento Language Translation extension is the ease of managing translations. Google Translation API does most of the magic. And, the magic is in the manipulation of the translation fetched by the Google API. Magento Language Switcher by AppJetty lets you do just that.

Using Google Translation API, you can fetch the translations and with a WYSIWYG editor you can adjust the translations as you please. Whether it is a CMS pages, or the meta details, or smaller segments such as reviews - you can translate all. Moreover, there is an option for Mass Translation, too. Easy right?

Why Should You Use AppJetty’s Magento Language Translation Extension?

Backend Control

This Magento language pack works on the backend. So once integrated, Admin can translate the content using Google API. And then, using WYSIWYG Editor, Admin can edit further on what they wish to display in the given language.

Let Users Choose

Unlike an IP-based Magento Language Switcher, our extension lets the users choose the language they wish to see your website in. As the Admin has the backend control, you will always be in control of what your user reads.

Mass Translation

An exclusive feature of Magento Language Translator which lets the user translate multiple product fields at once. Saving time, resources and the efforts, this feature lets the user manage and view mass translation status through CRON section. Do more in less time.

Translate Web Pages & More

AppJetty’s Magento Language Translation Extension doesn’t just work for Web Pages. It is also a complete solution to translate every piece of content available on your website. Be it Category Pages, Product Pages, Reviews, or Meta Details.

Search & Translate

No need to go through all the content to find the part you want to translate. If you want to convert a particular string of content, you can easily search and translate it into your preferred language across the site.

No IP-Based Results

Automatic switching often breaks the UX. It also limits the micro-level language permutations one would desire. Therefore, we have excluded IP-based multi-language options and provided full control to the site admin and the end user.

    If you edit it via vim Please press :wq to save and write in your editor.

  • While translating I am getting following message: Requests from referer are blocked. What should I do?

    Such response from the language translator appears because of the key restrictions. If you want to use the translation API key on more than one platforms, then you can keep the restriction to None but we do not recommend that as your translation API key might end up in someone’s hand and they can take advantage of that. So, to prevent such a scenario you can chose the HTTP referrers (Website) option under Application Restrictions. By doing so, you can only use the translation from referrers URL. You can open your Google console and in that you can go to your key and from that, you can manage the key restrictions. you can also refer the screenshot:

  • Never need human translation again

    Once we optimize configatuon of quota both inside the module and inside our Google Cloud dashboard, the app ran really well. Very few issues. 90%+ translations completed without issue. Some products not translated possibly because of quota limit or invalid characters. Overall this is amazing app. The quality of translation is also world class using Google machine learning from translate API. Very happy.

  • Fantastic and nothing like it

    This extension is the only worth using when you are importing product text from many different directions. This is the only I know about which translates from many languages to many languages and you can also choose part of your products and do not have to translate all in one. That is a plus. Also you do not have to overwrite what you already translated and cleaned as - machine translation often needs a little fixing afterwards and with this tool its easy to perform that as it allows you to pick what products to translate.

    I have now been looking all over the place to try to find the same for cs cart as I want to use cs cart but I am not able to. I miss this translation but it will though not get me to use magento again, but I have asked the developers of it - to please please please make it for cs cart as well. I think thousands would get very happy then.
