Creating a multilingual store with Wix and Ecwid

If your customers speak different languages and your site is built with Wix, you can add a language selector to your site and thus offer easier shopping to store visitors. A multilingual Ecwid store added to Wix works well with its language switcher.

Making Wix multilingual

To make your Wix site multilingual:

  1. Add necessary extra languages in Wix Editor Settings Multilingual.
  2. Use language switcher in the top bar of your Wix Editor to get to a site version in a different language and translate the site content into it:

This help article describes in detail how you can translate your site menu and site content into additional languages in Wix: Using Wix Multilingual to create a multilingual site.
  1. When you are ready with translation, activate additional languages so that they appear in the language switcher on your site: hover your mouse over the switcher to get to its settings, proceed to Manage Menu Manage Languages:

and enable the option to show your site in an additional language:

Additional language

Half the work is already done! Your Wix site is now available in multiple languages.

Making Ecwid multilingual

Now that your Wix site is available in multiple languages, you can make your Ecwid store multilingual too:

  1. Enable additional languages in Ecwid control panel → Settings → General → Regional Settings → Store Languages:

Enable additional language in Ecwid

 

  1. Add translations of your catalog into additional languages that you’ve enabled:

Add catalog translation

 

  1. If you haven’t yet connected Ecwid to the site, add your store to Wix.

That’s it. You have a multilingual store in your multilingual site, so your customers can switch to their preferred language and shop with comfort.
