How to change the language in Ecwid?

It is important to realize that Ecwid automatically changes its storefront language based on the browser settings of the user. If there is no appropriate language chosen, Ecwid defaults to English. If you’d like to change the language in Ecwid, you can do it in your Ecwid dashboard. The options for these settings are under the regional settings. You can find it in your control panel:

 

Ecwid Control Panel → Settings → General → Regional Settings.

Under Regional Settings, look for the Storefront Languages section. From here you can control the languages the page can be displayed in. You can disable certain languages, making the webpage available only in a limited number of languages. Also, you can set it to English only or any other specific language. Even more, you can offer the page in all the available languages in the Ecwid database.

 

Ecwid customizations

Ecwid offers the customization to show the page in one language, but still be able to view the product and category descriptions in the customer’s preferred language. In order to do this, download the Translatable Product and Category Descriptions application from the Ecwid app store. After this, all you need to do is provide the translation and mention the language. You need to follow a syntax for the app to detect it and translate it

 

[lang=”LOCALE_CODE”]Your description here[/lang]

 

The LOCALE_CODE is the code for the language such as en, fr, de, es etc. You can find the code for all languages online. Just enter the product or category description in this format where you usually enter the product or category details, and the app takes care of the rest.

 

Ecwid also extends its multilingual features for the notifications: confirmation of order, shipping details, payment status, etc. This platform detects the browser settings of the customer and sends the notification based on the language selected. If the language is not in Ecwid’s database, it sets the language based on your browser language settings instead. If neither of the languages are detectable, then the messages are sent in English.
