Using Translate Inline

We recommend you to make sure that Magento block cache, page cache, and translations cache are disabled before using the Translation Inline Tool.

In order to translate some text move cursor (mouse) to the very phrase, find a small book sign and press it. Then make a translation in the Custom field. Put the check mark in the Store View Specific section for indicating it for that language and for that store view specifically. If you want the new translation to be used for all the store views, please ignore this check mark.
