Bilingual Shopify Theme is very easy to work with. I highly recommend every business owner who desires to build a multilingual website to use this theme. Tristan and his team delivered the best customer service! Keep up the good work! Duyen
Wow! Thanks Duyen! Appreciate the kind words. Your store is looking good 🙂
I’m really interested in using this theme. I have a store in Polish and we want to expand this to English. Your theme looks perfect,but I wanted to know how to address the shopping cart in Shopify?
I currently have mine in PLN and in Poliish language, but I’d also like it in English and in Euros. Do you have a solution for this?
Thanks for your question and interest in the theme. To answer your question: I see two parts to this.
1) Language: Polish & English. Sure, this can be done. For the Shopping Cart, we suggest adding both languages, separated by a slash. This can be done using your settings, via Admin > Settings > Checkout > Checkout Language. Even we as developers don’t have access to show/hide language on checkout, so the best solution we’ve found is to show both languages at the same time. For an example, check out this screenshot here, or our demo store here. This way, your customers can see their preferred language at all times. This is the only time we need to do this, as we can’t control checkout – but the rest of the time, they’d see only their preferred language.
2) Currency: Yes, the currency converter can be added and you can have PLN, EUR and whichever other currencies you need. Some clients add this themeselves, others hire us to do it (it can be a little complex to get it all working with the language capability, which is why some people get our help to do it, but if you’re game you can try it yourself).
Here’s’ how https://wiki.shopify.com/How_to_Show_Multiple_Currencies
Here’s an example of a client using language + currency converter with our theme *removed*
One thing to note is that customers will only be able to check out in one currency (your store’s default currency), but you can display different currencies to give users an idea of what things will cost.
Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
