HI. I run a global sharing platform. I'd liked to translate language in my website to Korean, Chinese and Japanese. Is it possible to translate English to any other languages by this extension ?AnswerIn magento you have to provide locale files for each language you want the content to translate to. Our extension just assign the store and currency for frontend according to visitor IP. By store i mean, store views which you can use for language and each store can have its locale files (language files).
