A theme is a kind of template which can decide the way your online shops look like. Various themes own different layouts and styles, hence it can provide your customers with a great experience. For instance, when you are promoting and selling electric products, you might want your stores to look sleek and energetic. Meanwhile, with spa products, the theme you choose should look relaxed or luxurious. Now, choosing a language for the themes for any e-commerce platforms is quite important and that on Shopify is not an exception. Even though the Shopify themes are written in English, there are some of them having more than one language selection. Those themes consist of the translation of all text content in your online shop, including contact information, descriptions, cart, and checkout information. Interestingly, you can easily change your theme language for themes that have multiple languages. Hence, what happens when your theme does not possess the language you want? The answer is you can even create the translation by yourself. On the Shopify platform, you can own a language that is automatically active on your online shop.
