We apologize for the inconvenience, but the translation feature is currently experiencing issues due to a recent update by Shopify. Our team is actively investigating the problem and working on a resolution. We appreciate your patience and will keep you updated on the progress. Thank you for your understanding.
Customizing default text on the bundle page template
In addition to creating bundles, the Bundle Builder app allows you to customize bundle pages to meet your needs and the needs of your customers. This includes the option to customize the text.
Bundle Builder is compatible with third-party translation apps, allowing your bundle pages to use multiple languages. For many merchants who sell to audiences globally, this is the most convenient method.
However, if don't want to use a third-party app, or you just want to change specific wording on bundle pages (for example, replace 'bundle' with 'gift box'), then you can do this using Bundle Builder's Translation settings.
Navigating to Translations and creating custom labels
To access these Bundle Builder's settings:
Step 1: Under Bundle Builder on the left side App menu, go to Settings.
Step 2: Select Translations.
You will see an alphabetized list of placeholder text. This is the default text used on the bundle page. You can input your own custom text in the text boxes to replace the wording on your bundle pages.
These customizable text fields are also referred to as custom labels.
Step 3: Save your changes.
You can make basic translations or translate the text into a different language. Here are some examples of custom labels that would apply if you sold gift boxes instead of bundles.
Translating text without using a language translation app
As a standard, Shopify does not allow you to sell in multiple languages unless you have installed a supported third-party language translation app onto your store.
Without installing a language translation app, changing the placeholder text on the bundle page (i.e. creating custom labels as shown above) is a simple alternative. However, you are limited to translating only one language - which is your store's language.
If you don't have a language translation app installed, only two options will appear in the Language drop-down menu at the top of the Translations page:
The name of the language that your default is set to. E.g. English (en).
You can change the placeholder text for your specific language so that customers who speak your language only see the custom labels you created - effectively translating the bundle page.
Therefore, to apply custom labels to replace Bundle Builder's placeholder text:
Step 1: Under Translations > Language, select the second option from the drop-down menu (the name of the language that your default is set to).
Step 2: Write your chosen text in the fields below.
Step 3: Click Save.
Using a language translation app
Adding multiple languages
When using a language translation app, you will be able to use multiple languages on your storefront.
As the languages available within Bundle Builder are controlled through Shopify's admin settings, the languages you have added will show in the drop-down menu under Translations > Language.
Making custom changes to Translations
Making custom changes to the placeholder text under Translations requires more legwork when multiple languages are involved. This is because your custom changes must be made to each individual language.
To add placeholder text to multiple languages:
Step 1: Under Translations > Language, select the first language option that you are making changes to from the drop-down menu.
Step 2: Write your chosen text in the fields below in that first specific language.
Step 3: Go back to the drop-down menu, and select the second language option.
Step 4: Write your chosen text in the fields below in that second specific language.
Step 5: Continue until all language options have been entered and click Save.
Making master changes
Occasionally, you may want to replace bundle page placeholder text with custom labels that apply to all languages, regardless of which language your store is set to. This might apply to a trademarked piece of text or a product name that stays consistent through all languages.
To make these master changes, Bundle Builder uses your store's Default language. This is the language applied to the theme if your customer's preferred language isn't available.
Your default language can be found within your Shopify admin under Settings > Store languages.
Making master changes using the Default option
When you make changes to the Default language option in Translations, we call these master changes. This is because master changes are applied to all languages added to your store.
This means if you want to change the word bundle to gift box for all available languages, you would do this by changing the Default (master) language.
To make master changes:
Step 1: Go to Translations.
Step 2: Click the Language drop-down menu and select Default.
Step 3: Write your chosen master text in the relevant fields.
Step 4: Click Save.
Overwriting the Default mater changes
Master changes made by customizing the Default language option will apply to all available languages unless a change has also been made to the same placeholder text in another language. In that scenario, the second language will overwrite the Default translation for that specific audience.
Let's say you've added the languages English, French, Spanish, and German to your store.
On your bundle page, you want the word 'Bundles' to say 'Sweets' in every language - except French. In French, you want the word 'Bundles' to say 'Bonbons'.
Therefore, you need to make a master change to the word 'Bundles' by using the Default option, and then overwrite that master change for the French language option by using French (fr).
Example broken down into steps:
Step 1: Under Translations > Languages, select Default from the drop-down menu.
Step 2: Go to the field under the placeholder text which says 'Bundles'
Step 3: Enter 'Sweets'. (This changes the master text to sweets for all languages.)
Step 4: Go back to the drop-down menu and select French (fr).
Step 5: Go to the field under the placeholder text which says 'Bundles'.
Step 6: Enter 'Bonbons'. (This overrides the Default master text for French only).
Step 7: Click Save.
