The custom content (CC) feature has, generally, been developed as a work-around for specific content that can not be translated regularly. It is easy to use and also comes with advanced options. Find out more below ...
Frequent examples generally are 'Add to cart' or the 'announcement bar/banner'.
Further, CC can be used to translate certain third party app content for e.g. Search, Page builder or Review apps.
Check out our third party app integration list here.
Please create the custom content translations in the corresponding section.
(Global; Frontpage; Product pages; Collection Pages etc.)
Simply go to your custom section in langify and select the section to create the custom content.
E.g. the 'Add to Cart' button can apply to all section and therefore best added in global section.
While a translation for a specific product offer is best translated in the product category.
Step by step
- Choose the CC section.
- Create the Custom content
- Add your translations and save.
Hint: Use the Inspect tool (Link) to find the correct text to create the custom content
The additional options are helpful for certain use cases. E.g. some variant (for a product) or other specifics that only applies to that page.
Accordingly, in case necessary (e.g. many custom contents), we recommend creating those by section. For better overview and manageability as well as functionality.
Hence, please create those CC’s (exclusively), in langify, for those sections:
Global => applied to all pages (e.g. Footer & certain 3rd party app content)
Frontpage => front page only (e.g. Hero banner)
Product Pages => all product pages (e.g. Variants)
Collection Pages => all collection Pages
Blog/Article Pages => all Blog Pages
Custom Pages => all custom Pages
System Pages => all other pages (e.g. cart page, 404, account)
Important: Please only use CC if the regular translation does not apply. (e.g. several hundert custom contents might affect your loading speed)
Usually, it is fine to simply add custom contents to the ‘global’ section. (Mostly only few elements need to be custom translated)
Third party app content
It might be necessary for some apps to manually adjust the code on our side. (e.g. the ‘Product review app’)
Langify’s custom translation feature can also be used to translate certain third party apps that are not integrated out of the box. Simply follow the steps above and make sure the CC is created correctly. Should it not work for some reason, just let us know here, and we will have a look. Please make sure to add the CC for third party app translations in the respective section.
