Store language versions

Setting a language switcher

If you create a language version, you should add a button to your store that will allow visitors to switch between languages.

You can set up the language switcher yourself by clicking on 'Layout' > Then in 'Theme settings'.

From the left side menu, select 'Header and general settings'.

Make sure the 'Show language switch option' is selected.

The first language version is the one you are currently logged on to.

Give the full address of the store http:// - Preferably with the URL ending in 'shoplo.com'.

http://storename.shoplo.com

Then enter the URL of your language version.

The content you write on the field 'language label' will be visible to your customers.

Now you need to follow the same steps in the language version of your store, only this time enter the language version as first store and your main store as the second one.

Be sure not to delete or add new products - this will cause future bugs, for example when using Shared Stock to synchronize inventory.
