If your website is not in English or if you have a multilingual site you need widgets to be in the same language as the page, right? No problem! You can easily customize all the texts, field labels and buttons in your Getsitecontrol widgets.

Here is how you do it

  1. Log in your Getsitecontrol account.

  2. Click +Create widget and choose the solution you’re looking for. You can create any widget you need in any language.

  3. Select a webpage position and a template and click Continue →.

  4. On the Content tab check the title, description, field labels, button text and final message of your widget. Make sure they are in the right language. The changes you make will be displayed in real time in the preview window.

  5. If you’d like to change the look of the template, you can do it on the Appearance tab: change the colors for the widget and, if necessary, its size and paddings. Use the Theme section to alter the style and font. Add exciting pictures and stickers from the pre-built gallery, import images from the web, or upload your own visuals.

  6. Click Save & close to save your widget. When you are ready to publish it on your website, activate your popup and it will go live at once.

Target your widgets accordingly

Let’s say your website supports multiple languages. In that case, you’d probably want to have a version of your widget for each language. And, most importantly, you’d want to show the right widget to the right audience.

Well, you can do just that with the help of the targeting options. Access the Targeting tab and click +Add filter in the Show widgets to visitors if section. Navigate to Device and select Language. Choose the right language for each widget accordingly.

How to display localized widgets to the website visitors based on their browser language

This way, if the primary browser language of the user’s website is Japanese, the Japanese version of your widget will pop up to welcome them on your website.
