Order Printer Pro will automatically create the initial templates (when installing the app) in your store's primary language. So if your website's primary language is set to German, then the templates will be automatically created in German.

However, if you want to translate each of your documents into different languages quickly, we have two easy ways to do it.

Note: The following guide is relevant if you are using the template designs that are provided within the Order Printer Pro app

Option 1:

If you want to create a new template with a different language in the app:

1- Login to Order Printer Pro (Shopify admin > Apps)
2- Go to the Manage templates page
3- Click the Create template button on the upper right-hand side

4- Go to Language and choose the language you want to translate the template to

5- Choose the template you want to translate and click on the Select button.

Note: When you use the "Import or reset template" button, you can also choose which language the template should have applied to it when created/reset:

This option makes the translation fast and easy. So, feel free to use it as much as you need. Currently, we support the following languages in Order Printer Pro:

  • Australian English

  • Bulgarian (Bulgaria)

  • Canadian English

  • Chinese (Simplified)

  • Chinese (Traditional)

  • Croatian (Croatia)

  • Czech

  • Danish

  • Dutch

  • English

  • Finnish

  • French

  • German

  • Greek

  • Hindi

  • Hungarian

  • Indonesian

  • Italian

  • Japanese

  • Korean

  • Lithuanian (Lithuania)

  • Malay

  • Norwegian (Bokmål)

  • Portuguese (Brazil)

  • Portuguese (Portugal)

  • Romanian (Romania)

  • Slovenian (Slovenia)

  • Spanish

  • Swedish

  • Thai

Option 2:

If you what to create your own translation or if your language isn't in the list of the supported languages, then you may translate the templates manually. No worries, it is still an easy process.

1- Login to Order Printer Pro (Shopify admin > Apps)
2- Go to the Manage templates page
3- Click the Edit template button for the template you would like to translate
4- At the top of the template code, update the words inside the quotes beginning with "TEXT_" (see screenshot):

Note: Only change the words inside the quotation marks, as shown below:

Once you're done, you need to save the template, and that's it; you're all set up!

Add support for multiple languages

If your store supports multiple-languages, you can also setup your templates to automatically generate the document in the correct language. See the Multi-language templates help article for step-by-step instructions.
