How to enable multi-language support for Wishlist Plus
In order to support your localization efforts, Wishlist Plus offers multiple languages for a single site such that the shopper-facing storefront experience (i.e. interface buttons and links, pop-ups, notification alerts and the Wishlist page) gets automatically translated to the shopper’s language setting, as dictated by their browser.
This feature is available for Shopify stores. If the chosen language isn’t on our supported list, the app will fall back to English. Currently, we offer automatic translation support for the following 5 languages, along with English as the default language:
If you’ve installed the app after 10th October 2023, the translation is enabled automatically upon app install and available on any of our paid plans.
If you’ve installed the app before 10th October 2023 and would like to enable this feature, please reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the support for multi-language limited to Shopify stores at this time?
Yes. We will extend support for BigCommerce stores in the near future.
Is this feature only available on a paid plan?
Yes, this feature is available on all our paid plans.
When will other languages be supported as part of the automatic translation?
We plan to add support for other languages as part of our regular product updates. If there are specific languages you’d like us to enable support for, please email us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to get that added as soon as possible.
Does this translation also apply to the Swym Admin portal?
No, the multi-language feature is limited to the online storefront at this time. The Swym Admin portal is still only available in English. We plan to extend localization support for our Admin portal in the coming months.
Does this translation also apply to the email/SMS alerts that are sent from the app?
No, the multi-language feature is only available on the storefront at this time. If you are using an Email Service Provider (ESP), support for translating your emails/email templates based on user locale is typically handled by the ESP. You might want to check with your provider on the same.
Do the apps also automatically switch the currency based on the shopper’s locale?
Yes, that support already exists in our apps. In other words, even before the multi-language update, our apps were already able to default to the shopper’s currency based on their locale.
