Auto Translation Pro: General questions

To configure the plugin, please follow the steps below:

1. Upload the app in the administration under "Extensions/My Extensions".

2. Install and activate the app.

3. Go to the app configuration and add the translation service ID you need.

4. Create a Private Key for the translation service you want, we recommend DeepL. Note that you need the Developer Package to get a DeepL key.

If you use a Google Translate API Key, add this as well.

5. Check in the app configuration whether the private key is valid for the desired translation service.

6. Go to "Settings/Shop/Languages" and specify a source language and the desired translation API for the languages to be translated.

7. Once the language is configured, you can use it for translation.

If you would like to test the result before purchasing an API key, you can enter your text on the following pages and view the result:

DeepL Translation
Google Translator

The translation button is located under "Catalogue/Products/ProductX" next to the cancel button.

This error can occur if the database table was not created correctly during installation. This can be added with the following SQL commands.

There is a current issue with Shopware that may be similar to your problem. Please have your IT check the corresponding database table and change it to the correct ISO specification if necessary.

To the Shopware Issue

There is currently an error in Shopware that the wrong ISO code is stored in the database table for the text modules. This setting cannot be changed via the admin area, but must be entered directly in the snippet_set database table. Please make sure that the ISO code is also entered that is stored for the language in the settings under Language.

To make the translation button clickable, you have to create and activate the language in the backend as usual. This corresponds to the standard procedure in Shopware. Note, however, that the language only becomes visible in the frontend when you assign it to a sales channel. This way you can use the translation function without making the entire language publicly available.
