GoogleTranslate offers frontend translation. Useful, yes. But often slow, and it is not always perfect. Our powerful Magento extension offers backend translations for all your products and categories. This allows you to correct translations before publishing. And it makes your site fly!
GOOGLE TRANSLATE IS NOT FREE: As of 24th August 2011, the Google Translation API v2 is only available as a paid service. While Googles pricing is ok, we understand objections against it. Please note that we do not offer the Google Translation itself, neither can we determine the terms under which it is offered.
- Translate text in the Magento backend with a single mouse click
- Modify your translated text to your needs
- Support for any Store or Store View
- Language (locale) is automatically detected
- No performance loss on your frontend
Quick steps to get it working

- Purchase Yireo GoogleTranslatehere
- Install and configure the Yireo GoogleTranslate module in Magento
- Enter the API-key in the Magento System Configuration
- Start translating
For the complete instructions and more features see the online installation guide.
Why GoogleTranslate instead of BingTranslate?
Just like Google, Microsoft also has its own computer-based translation API - previously known as BingTranslator, now known as Microsoft Translator. Both offer a finejob when translating Magento content, but some users claim that the Google translation is slightly better than the one of Microsoft. However, GoogleTranslate charges for every translation you make, while the Microsoft Translation API is free up to a certain limit.
