Magento by default doesn’t have translate option for the whole website. It’s quite complicated to create different versions for your shop. You may face with such problems as what language to choose, where to find a writer, how to manage with SEO in a case of having content in different languages and how to redirect users to relevant version. What if you have 10-20 users per month who speak Chinese, German, Russian or any other language. It seems to be not a good way to spend money by translating the whole website. But these users can become customers, so they require a proper attitude.
Translate extension features:
- give an ability to choose a design of links (flag images or drop-down)
- support more than 50 languages available
- change the text for the whole shop
- move it wherever you want
