While implementing the multi language site, I came across one problem that was bit obvious. The German language store showing plain english keyword everywhere. How to change all the values was the biggest change for me. After little research and found that magento had very good feature that lets to keep the vocab of each and every language while building multi language store site. The feature is nothing but inline editing for each and every labels. Lets move on how to enable inline editing in magento.
Quick 5 steps to enable inline eiditing in magento:
Step 1: Login to the magento admin panel and go to “System > Configuration”
Step 2: From Left panel first select the store i.e.Current Configuration Scope: English, French, German.
Step 3: Allow the page to get reload and then select “developer” tab from left menu. It will reload the page again. Once page is ready from right hand panel search for section “Translate Inline”
Set dropdown value to “Yes” for “Enabled for Frontend”. This will enable the inline editing for frontend. Oh Yes dont forgot to click on “save config”.
Step 4: Go to the website fron-end and mouse over the links like create account, login. It will show you image like book; just click on this and it will open the popup window for you. select check box for “Store View Specific:” otherwise value added for french store will appear for english and german too :), so be careful here and save the data.
Step 5: Last change is if chaching is enabled for your website then don’t forget to clear the magento cache. clear it and go back to frontend. Your change will be visible for particular store.
