Translate Directive Usage

If you run a multi-language Magento store you may face challenges with some Static Blocks and CMS Pages when displaying text on them in a store language. Magento Tweaks extension allows you to add Translate directive to your Static Blocks and CMS Pages.

For example, you run 2 Magento stores (one in English and one in German) and want the footer link 'Technical Support' to be translated into the German language when a customer switches to the German store view.

  • Go to 'CMS > Static Blocks' section and edit 'Footer Links' block
  • Replace 'Technical Support' text with {{translate text="Technical Support"}} and save the static block
  • Go to [Magento root]/app/design/frontend/[YOUR PACKAGE]/[YOUR THEME]/locale/it_DE/ folder and create/edit translate.csv file
  • Add a new line "Technical Support","Technischer Support" and save the file
  • Go to 'System > Cache Management' section and untick Cache Control checkbox for 'Blocks HTML output'
  • The text will be automatically translated into German when you switch the store view

To create Store view language dependent CMS Page you should use {{translate block_id="..."}} directive.

For example, you run 2 stores (one in English and one in German) and you want the CMS Page 'Technical Support' to be translated into German when a customer switches to the German store view.

  • Go to 'CMS > Static Blocks' section and create 'Technical Support' static block with identifier tech_support. This will be your default content for 'Technical Support' CMS Page.
  • Create one more 'Technical Support' static block with identifier tech_support_de (_de suffix means German). This will be your German content for 'Technical Support' CMS Page.
  • Go to 'CMS > Manage Pages' section and create 'Technical Support' CMS Page. Use directive {{translate block_id="tech_support"}} for the content. This directive will automatically add Store view language as a suffix for the static block identifier tech_support and load tech_support_de static block instead of tech_support
  • Go to 'System > Cache Management' section and untick Cache Control checkbox for the 'Blocks HTML output'
  • 'Technical Support' CMS Page will be automatically translated into German when a customer switches the store view.

Nice but breaks order viewing (EE)

On August 25, 2016
Some good useful features, but not really tested in EE, despite EE being an option when downloading.

For instance, if you enable "Product Name Column in Orders View (Backend)" and try to view customer's orders you get a nice big fat SQL error.

Perfect - works as promised

Does what it says it will do. Simple to use and easy to install. Price is slightly higher than I would have thought for the limited tweaks available but still cheaper than doing it yourself.

Wonderful extension

On December 27, 2010
Well worth the money. These guys are amazing. I was so frustrated that magento just doesn't show the latest product uploaded first. This tweak allows the 'newest' to be shown in the categories first sot hat the customer can see the newest rather than always being faced with the oldest product. To me, it mattered and this fixed it. Fabulous Boys!!!

Excellent Support, good Extension

On November 15, 2010
At first some problems with installation/ functionality. But Mageworx fixed this perfectly. First class and very polite support! Only 4 Stars because of little documentation, otherwise full 5 stars.

MageWorx is the Best. It's really the mage's work

On October 19, 2010
I bought this extension along with other 6 extensions.
All of their extensions are wonderfully very helpful.
No need to waste time for searching extensions from any other company.
MageWorx is the best choice and solution.

Must have extension with suberb support

These tweaks should be in magento by default. This extension is really worth the 30€. The customer service really superb.
