Due to a general change of third-party app permissions, langify is no longer be able to automatically alter your theme code. Usually it is enough to simply have langify published as embedded app in your Shopify Theme Customizer. However, in some cases it can be beneficial to the translation reliability to have an additional layer of translation code injected into your theme. In langify, this is called the "polyfill code". You can add this to your theme as outlined below.

Cases where the polyfill code is necessary are:

  • to apply translations of the Static section
  • to translate HTML attributes with Custom content
  • to apply translation of the product tags, types and vendor section
