About LangShop Theme

langshop theme

LangShop theme differs from the original theme due to its additional functionality. When you are selling in multiple languages, most likely, you want the app to translate all data in your online store into different languages, which is possible, but with the LangShop theme.

LangShop supports Shopify translation API. It is responsible for the output of the multilingual content. In other words, Shopify API displays translations to international customers that you translate with the help of LangShop.

At this time, Shopify API does not translate resource tags, images, and static text a lot of merchants use in their original themes like Debut, Brooklyn, or any other theme build by third-party developers.

LangShop theme is optional. If you use tags, static content, and images, you will need to create a LangShop theme. It adds additional code and assets to the template engine to search for tags and display them at your storefront. You can also change images for your products (collections, blogs) and show different media files for different versions of your store.
