Each Pixel Union theme includes a language editor, and this allows merchants to manually translate their theme to another language.

Can I have more than one language for customers to select?
Recent cross-border theme enhancements introduce a language selector for the footer. This works with the language sets included or added to a theme.
Theme-based translations can only provide translations for elements of the storefront controlled by the theme. This would exclude portions of the storefront such as product descriptions, static page content, or blog posts.
If there are no additional language sets in your theme, there is a select group of language translation apps for customers to view the storefront in their preferred language.
Are there alternative language sets available for my theme?
If you're using Superstore, there are 21 language sets available to use:
Atlantic v14.5.0+, Grid v4.9.0+, Launch v6.6.0+, Handy v2.9.0+, Empire v5.5.0+, Startup v9.5.0+, and Editions v9.9.0+ include the following 10 language sets:
- Chinese (Simplified)
For Empire versions 5.8.0 and above, Italian is included as an additional language set.

If you're using Pacific, Vogue, or Reach, English is the only language set included. Using the language editor to manually translate the theme is advised.
