Get started with the Shopware 6 plugin

The Shopware 6 extension integrates EasyTranslate into Shopware 6. It enables you to translate categories, products and much more automatically through our plugin.

Once installed via zipfile, Github, or Shopware Marketplace, you have to connect the plugin to your Easytranslate account.
To connect the plugin to the EasyTranslate platform, there are a few configuration steps which must be followed.

You'll then land on the Projects page. Here you'll not only be sending content for translation, but you'll also have an overview of your ongoing tasks, their progress, their price, and much more.

The overview shows you the name you have given your task, the price, the source language, the target language, and the status of your task. 
On the far right, you'll see an icon that can edit these columns. Clicking on it, will allow you to toggle between the order of the columns, and hide and/or delete columns, so you can customise it as you see fit.

On the same page, click "Create project"

Fill in the information required to create a project - 
1. Project name 
2. Workflow type (Translation, translation + review, Translate yourself + MT) 
> We'll get back to these below
3. Source language 
4. Target language(s) 
> For target language(s) please make sure you are already set up for them in Shopware, or else they will not be available when trying to select them. Needless to say, the language(s) you are selecting, also needs to be included in your EasyTranslate contract. 

When selecting workflow type, please bear in mind that you may not have revision included in your contract. If you are in doubt, please reach out to support via the chat function within the EasyTranslate platform.

You are now ready to start selecting your Category assignment and Product assignment.

You can select all the categories and products within that you'd like. However do note that each product will generate a separate task in the EasyTranslate platform, so if you send many tasks over in one go, it will take some time for them to be processed, analysed, priced, and assigned to translators. 
This will also generate many small invoices in a short period of time. To avoid any conflict with this, we recommend you set yourself up with our Wallet payment option. 
Please see Knowledge base article regarding the Wallet setup for more info on this. 

Once you have selected the products you want translated, scroll to the top, and click save. You'll then land on the following page:

You'll see a notification on the right, confirming that your project has been saved. 
Once you scroll down, you'll also see the details of the project. 
When you are ready to send your content to translation, click "Send project to EasyTranslate". 

This will generate a project on the EasyTranslate platform, and once the translation is complete and has been sent back to Shopware, you will see the status has changed.
