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.
