In this article, you'll find how the checkout page is handled by Weglot and how to edit it.

How Weglot handle the Shopify checkout page?

Checkout pages won't be detected by Weglot as they belong to another domain. 
Indeed, knowing that these pages are hosted by Shopify itself, translations will be directly handled on its side.

In any circumstances, your checkout will be automatically translated into the related destination languages thanks to a mechanism we manage. 
Weglot indicates Shopify the language chosen by the visitor to make Shopify display the same language.

⚠️ If your checkout is not translated at all, please make sure that you don't have any languages on your Shopify admin > Settings > Store languages > Translated languages (even if they are unpublished)
