AI translate

The AI translate plugin needs to be activated for your organization. You must be given specific permission to utilize the feature.

AI translate is an AI-powered tool to translate existing attribute values stored in PIM. The tool uses natural language processing techniques to analyze the text and generate high-quality, accurate, and contextually appropriate translations.

By utilizing this tool, you will save a great amount of time and cost on translating product information. Multiple products can be processed simultaneously.

Follow these steps to translate product attribute values:

  1. Go to the Products page.
