Bold Checkout Language Settings

When Bold Checkout is first installed on your store, the default and only language that is present in the app is English. You can import as many languages into Checkout as you'd like.

To import a language into Bold Checkout, please follow these steps:

  1. From within Bold Checkout, select SettingsLanguage Settings.
  2.  Under Checkout Language, select Import Languages.
  3. Select your desired language from the dropdown menu.
  4. Select Translate and Import.

After a language has been imported, it will be available to all customers from the language dropdown in Bold Checkout.

If a language is not available in the import list, it can be manually added from scratch within Bold Checkout. 

To create a language in Bold Checkout, please follow these steps:

  1. From within Bold Checkout, select SettingsLanguage Settings.
  2. Select Create a Language.
  3. Enter a language name and adjust the verbiage accordingly.
  4. Select Save

Once each section has been filled in, select Save either at the top or the bottom of the page.

Once a language has been saved, the language will be available to choose from your customers in the Bold Checkout language dropdown selector.

  1. From within Bold Checkout, select SettingsLanguage Settings.
  2. Select the pencil icon next to the language you'd like to edit.
  3. Make your desired changes.
  4. Select Save.

Note: You can select Reset All in order to revert all changes back to the original.

When a customer proceeds into the Bold checkout page, the default language set within Bold Checkout will be used.

Since Bold Checkout doesn't have a geolocation feature to dynamically switch the language based on a customer's IP Address, the default language is used for any customer that enters into the checkout page.

We recommend setting the default language to either your store's default currency, or a language from the region that most commonly views your store.

 Example

If your store's default language is English, but the majority of your stores are from Italy, setting the default language to Italian may help with more successful conversion rates on your store.

To change the default language in Checkout, please follow these steps:

  1. From within Bold Checkout, select SettingsLanguage Settings.
  2. Under Default Checkout Language, select an imported language from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select Set as Default.

Note: In order to delete a language, it must not be set to the default language.

There are a couple of limitations with the Language Settings functionality with Bold Checkout: 

  • Both Latin and non-Latin languages are supported. However, the Country and Province/State names will not be translated.
  • The layout of the address fields will not be changed if you switch to a language that has a different address format.
