How languages will be migrated from multilingual shopping cart to Shopify?

Note: Check out if your Source cart supports Multiple Language Migration here.

Cart2Cart provides the possibility of performing an automated Shopify import. However, if your current store is multilingual and translated into several languages with the help of WPML module, pay attention to the fact that Shopify is capable of supporting only one language simultaneously. Thus, only a default language from your Source cart (Magneto, OpenCart, osCommerce, Prestashop, ThirtyBees, VirtueMart, WooCommerce, WP eCommerce, X-Cart, xt:Commerce, Zen Cart) will be transferred to your Target cart (Shopify).

In order to secure and smooth migration, you need to make sure your Shopify store uses the same default language as your Source cart does.

It can be easily done…

  1. Go to your Shopify admin panel and choose ‘Online store’ tab from the Menu.
  2. shopify_theme_language_setup

  3. Pick up ‘Themes’ panel.

  4. In the right top corner of the page click on ‘...’ button and from the drop-down menu choose ‘Edit language’ option.

  7. Selection_121
