Among the most advanced Glotio features, Find and Replace is a very important help to improve your translation. You can always find a word or string of words that you prefer to replace with another one. With this tool it will be a piece of cake.

"Find and replace" is the tool that Glotio offers you so that you can correct possible words that Glotio has translated with a meaning that you do not consider correct, or that should not have been translated from the native language.

VERY IMPORTANT: After replaced these words, add them to the "dictionary" or the "list of excluded words" and thereby prevent the same mistake in a later translation.

An example: You have a is when a photography shop and you want to translate the word “objetivo”. Normally, when you want to translate this word from Spanish to English, the automatic Glotio system translates it as “objetive” when the word you want to appear is really “lens”. You can find and replace it for all sessions on the web that are affected. 

How does it work?

Thanks to this beautiful tool, you don't need to change every single word on your site: the "Find and Replace" feature allows you to save a lot of time and money.

Simply add the word you want to replace in the field on the left - you can choose in which language and also if you want to differentiate between upper and lower case letters and the section where it appears.

The system searches for first by words or phrases you inserted and then, depending on the results, makes a second search according to the filter set. 

Glotio will replace the chosen word in all languages you choose and put it in the right places in your PrestaShop.

You can put the words or phrases you want to replace, just as you want. The system will inform you once it has replaced all the texts. If you notice that it doesn't update and replace the text, clear the cache and try again to replace.


*In order to use Find and Replace first you should have made at least one translation.
