New: Customizable locales in merchant interface and auto translations

The locales shown are now customizable. All German speaking merchants get ‘German’ in addition to ‘English’ so they may enter their texts in both languages. You can even change the order of the languages in the preferences.

German and English text fields

We’re also able to auto-translate your content to English now. Just leave the english text fields empty and we’ll translate them in no time.

If you’re not speaking German you’ll no longer see the german input fields and get less distracted.

Further optimization of the URLs, now with locale string

Another step to optimize the URLs of your step lies behind us: In the future your shop will be available under /en and /de for the two different localizations we provide. This has a significant benefit: The language a visitor chooses is not longer saved in the session of the browser. Search engines have a full path to index: /en/collections and /de/collections, so there will be no longer dynamic mixed up search engine results like you see on this screenshot:

Of course all links you set in the past are still valid. A visitor of /collections will be redirected to /en/collections.
