This article covers the creation of custom Shop Uploader templates. If you have not created a template please visit the How do I add category-specific product properties to my Shop Uploader templates? article.

Etsy allows users to operate their shops in multiple languages. You are able to select any number of these languages or just stick with your default.

If you need to enable translations visit the How to enable translations on Etsy shops article.

To add translations you need to select them in the “Add Translations to Template” section on the Templates page. Translations can only be added by using the custom template creator. You can add as many translations as you want but you can only translate the titles, descriptions, and tags.

Note: Translations are not available on the legacy Shop Uploader templates.
