Shopify native Multi-Language Support

  • Hey there,

    as announced at the Unite 2019, Shopify plans to introduce native multi-language ability to all stores later this year - are you guys working with shopify on this? It would be great if the forums would be available in other languages and probably the forum content / messages could be translated

  • As a forum's content is primarily user-generated and the language in which posts are generated in are typically in a single language, having multiple languages in a forum is not something which will be offered native to the app.

    Google Translate offers the best solution. Here's an example of how you could implement that within Champ today: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47963066/javascript-jquery-call-google-translate-on-button-click-with-flags

    Essentially, you can create a snippet of code (in your theme, which Champ will pick up) and create a button that allows users to live translate the content on your site.

How to format posts

Champ uses Markdown for formatting text in posts. Certain markup tags (eg. H1) are forbidden to ensure that pages remain semantically compliant. Other tags are automatically sanitized to ensure all content is secure.

  • Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.
  • Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.
  • Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**.
  • Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~
  • Links are added automatically, but can be formatted like so: [My link](https://mylink.com)
For more information, take a look at the Markdown Cheatsheet.
