Set widget language
Set your widget language to improve the overall customer experience and give your brand a more international, modern feel. This option is especially useful if you’re managing several teams in different countries, since you can create multiple widgets and set up a default language for each one. Learn more about it below!
How can I set up the chat widget language?
As you know, the Paldesk chat widget is highly customizable, and that includes language customization. Follow these simple steps to configure a default language for your chat widget, and effectively translate it for your clients:
Step 1: Go to Administration > Embeddable Elements > Website widget > General tab. Here you can create a new widget or edit an existing one.
Step 2: Make sure to translate the widget name and global message into your target language. Save changes and move on to the next step.
