The Basic plan of the Magento 2 Translation is of great use if you need to translate some short labels or buttons. Yet, these are not the only elements you need to adjust for your multilingual store. Thus, if you want to have access to more advanced translation options, you need to upgrade the plan to Plus.

So, in this guide, you'll learn how to upgrade your Magento 2 Translation plan.

Upgrade using composer

First off, remove the extension you currently use:

composer remove magefan/module-translation*

Now you're good to install an upgraded version. To do that, go to My Account > My Downloads and click on the Install via Composer button to find the installation instructions.

Upgrade using archive

If you installed the Translation Extension via archive, you have to upgrade it the same way. Simply go to your Magefan account, download the extension archive and extract it.

We recommend creating a backup of the extension folder on your server before moving further.

After that, copy the app folder from the archive to your Magento 2 directory. The new extension files will merge with the existing ones.

Update Magento 2 extension via FTP

Once you copy the files to your Magento root directory, run the following commands:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

With the upgraded extension you'll be able to conduct a more advanced search of text available for translation. It also allows you to edit and translate product attributes, email templates, CMS blocks and much more.
