If you want to sell globally and manage a multi-language Magento website, be ready to do a lot of translation, depending on the number of languages you want to translate your website to.
Magento is very flexible with translations since it provides you with the Translate Inline Tool out-of-the-box. However, translating long-form content requires a lot of manual work.
Not very time-effective, is it?
Luckily there is Crowdin that allows you to streamline the translations workflow, and modify and deploy translations online automatically.
The only thing left is to get all your content synced with Crowdin so you can add translations in real-time.
That's what our Magento 2 Crowdin Integration Extension is here for and in this article, you'll learn how you can configure it.
Once you install the Crowdin Integration module, you need to Enable it. For that just go to Stores > Configuration > Magefan Extensions > Crowdin Integration > General.
Don't forget to Save Config before moving on with the synchronization.
Activate Crowdin Integration
To synchronize Magento and Crowdin you have to Activate Integration.
1. Once you click on the link, you will be redirected to the Magento Integration section. Find the "crowdin" integration and click Activate.
2. All permissions required for the extension to work properly are already pre-set. So all you need is to click Allow to confirm the action.
3. Once you have generated your Integration Tokens, just click the Done button and move back to the configuration section.
4. Copy Integration Key and paste it into the Crowdin Integration.
Synchronize Crowdin with Magento
To synchronize data you want to translate with Crowdin, choose the product, category, email, page, and block in the Translation Fields and Enable Sync.
In case you don't want to export all products and categories to Crowdin, but only some of them, check the Catalog Synchronization section.
Here you can choose to synchronize specific categories and products or all except specific categories and products and define these products in the following field.
Once you Save Config, all data selected will be synched to Crowdin. You'll be able to find it under Workspace > Magefan Integration > Integrations > Magento.
You can select the files you want to be synced to Crowdin and press the corresponding button.
After your sync the files, you will be able to do the translation. Then, when you make the translations, you can sync the translated data back to Magento at the very same location (Workspace > Magefan Integration > Integrations > Magento).
Exclude Data from Synchronization
If you want to exclude some information from syncing, disable the Sync for certain attributes and Save Config.
With Magento 2 Crowdin Integration Extension translating Magento is fast and easy since you can streamline the process, track the progress within the Crowdin tool and sync the translations back to Magento.
