Configuration For Multi-Lingual Support
For multilingual support, the admin will navigate through Store->Configuration->General ->Locale Options and select the locale as German (the language into which the admin want to translate his store content).
Further, if you want to translate their module language from English to German then follow the path app/code/Webkul/ProductAttachment/i18n in their unzipped Magento2 Preorder folder, and then you will get a CSV file with the name “en_US.csv”.
Now, rename that csv as to your region code and language code “de_DE.csv” and translate all right-side content after a comma in your language. After editing the CSV, save it and then upload it to the path app/code/Webkul/ProductAttachment/i18n where you have installed Magento 2 on their server. The module will get translated into your desired Language. It also supports RTL and LTR languages.
Moreover, the user can edit the CSV like the image below.
