Changes to Theme Translatable Content Keys


As of February 17th, newly-created themes will generate translatable content keys for content in JSON templates in an altered format. Translations originating outside of JSON templates, such as those stored in the locales/ folder of a theme, are not affected by this change.

Old: section.Template—123456__section_id.block_id.setting_id New: section.product.ext.json.section_id.block_id.setting_id:abc123

We consider the precise format of these keys to be an implementation detail, but try to ensure that the keys remain consistent for a resource over time. Given that, these new keys will only be generated for themes that are uploaded or duplicated after 12:00 EST February 17th.

More information about our translation API is available in our API documentation.
