Exploring Shopware: Languages in Shopware 6 Settings

- E-Commerce, Shopware

The ability to expand your business to foreign markets is always a benefit. When we talk about e-commerce platforms, it is usually based on two pillars. Firstly, it is support for multiple currencies. Secondly, it is support for multiple languages. However, in some cases, you need to translate not only the frontend appearance of your e-commerce website but also its backend part. If you have an international team of administrators, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we explore the Languages screen situated in the Shopware 6 administration. This section of Settings lets you manage the existing languages available in the backend as well as add new ones. In the following article, we explore these processes. It sheds light on how to find the section in the administration, what its purpose is, how to manage the existing grid records. Also, you will find recommendations on the related import/export processes as well as an FAQ section for those who want to explore the topic briefly.

Note that we provide Shopware integration with external platforms. Contact our support for further information or try our Improved Import & Export Extension for Shopware.
