OpenCart is free open source ecommerce platform for online merchants.

Translation's reason

I am so pleased to start the translation of the OpenCart's project.

As you maybe already know, I used to have with another person an e-commerce activity. I worked with Amazon and for some time with eBay. The thing that a lot of people don't know about this websites is that is not so easy to try to sell a product with them. When you start to sell your products, for example on Amazon, it is very difficult to list a product. I know that this can be seen as a simple thing to do: you have to register your company in the website, send all the documentation that it needs, get approved and then you can start selling. To start selling you have, as I said before, to list your products and it is not that simple! You don't have only to upload some images and write a description and a title: you must have a profound knowledge of the website which is not that intuitive.
Even more difficult is to try to create your e-commerce website! For simple merchants is difficult to start from nothing and build a website, especially if they don't know where to start.
OpenCart can gives you a friendly interface to use and has a lot of features that give you the amazing opportunity to customize your store as you like. In their website (simply search on Google) there are a lot of videos helping you in every step that you have to make to give life to your dream. Everything is very intuitive and simple!
Translating the computer strings about this awesome project will be a pleasure for me, because I think that it can be very important to spread it all over the world and especially in Italy where the concept of working from home and having an e-commerce activity is still very far from being taken into consideration and even accepted!

Contribution specifications

As in the previous translated projects, my work will be to translate computer strings from the English language into the Italian one.
This is my third translation for the OpenCart project. Like the other times I did not have any difficulties in translating the computer strings. Some words, like in the previous translations, need to remain in the English language like token, link, id, marketplace and others. Unfortunately I found a lot of identical strings a lot of times: this is why I had to translate 2001 words to consider 1018 words for the word count.

Translation Overview

I would like to underline that this project has been translated for 50% from other Italian users so now I am translating the rest of it. For this reason, sometime can happen that the computers strings are not well related to each other.
In this third translation work I found a lot of strings regarding eBay, it's tax rate, automated updates of it's orders, it's summary page where you can find if there are any limits on your account, the synchronization with the latest shipping and categories options, etc.
I found also a lot of strings regarding Etsy which is an online store where you can find a lot of products entirely handmade! There were not many detailed strings about Etsy but only simple ones like the activation, the deactivation and the removal of a product, the listings of this online shop, the stock, etc.
Like the other two translations, I found a lot of strings regarding listings, of course. In particular what measurement system you want to use for them, what can happen when using eBay you exceed a precise amount during the creation of new listings, the link and the unlink between a product and a listing, the activation and the deactivation of it and the keywords that can be applied only on active listings, etc.
Below you can find some of the strings I had to translate

About eBay...

If you use the rate from listings ensure your items have the correct tax in eBay
This is for automated updates, for example if you update an order in eBay and the new status is updated in your store automatically.
This is your eBay account summary page. It is a quick snapshot of any limits on your account along with your DSR selling performance.
Sync your store with the latest available shipping and categories options from eBay, this data is only for the options when listing an item to eBay - it will not import categories to your store etc.

About Etsy

You have saved your changes to the Etsy extension
You do not have permission to Etsy settings
The item has been removed from Etsy
The item has been deactivated in Etsy
The item has been activated in Etsy

About listings

more items (this is the total amount of items, not individual listings) to the value of
When you try to create new listings, it will fail if you exceed the amounts above.
A product has been linked to the listing
Are you sure you want to remove the listing?


The original strings are written in English and I translated them into Italian. I have been selected by the DaVinci team as a translator thanks to my knowledge of the English language gained during my 3 years of stay in London. You can read my application post HERE
