Change text and language on the checkout page and all ecommerce pages from english to german

Recommended Posts

2137518246_CheckoutSquarespaceGermanLanguage.thumb.png.b6d2ca8137a3c1ccb64ba80ca3715673.pngHello,

i have already setup a webpage included an online shop. But i need to change the text and language from english to german, e.g. the shopping cart and the checkout (please check the attached screenshot). As my business will be in germany, customers will be german, the webpage and all text content has to be german, especially all text from the ecommerce pages. Otherwise its against the law and i  guess i ll be forced to leave the squarespace plattform.

Help is very needed.

Thanks, regards Tom

This way you can have the checkout page to display on that language.

*Assuming the site is using a Bedford, Brine, or York family template or is running on Squarespace 7.1 🙂

You can change the language of your site to German in Home > Settings > Language & Region. This way you can have the checkout page to display on that language. Check this Squarespace help article for more specifics:

Change your site language

If the website is in a language that Squarespace has no translation for (Swedish), how can the language be changed then? Help appreciated! 🙂

Hi @angelica

It isn't good news. If you want to run the front-end of your website in Swedish then there isn't an easy solution. There are many hundreds of fixed phrases that must be translated manually using code. Some have been partially documented but I doubt you'll find a comprehensive guide.

@paul2009 Thank you ! 🙂 Yeah, I really hope Squarespace is working on better solutions for language support in the future. I'm using MemberSpace with my website and they have a great feature that lets you translate most of the words used. I would love to see something like that! Also more options for how to show time, date, forms etc. Not all countries start the calendar on Mondays, write MMDDYY, use AM/PM or have states. 🙂

Exactly! If it's any help @angelica, I have an extension that allows you to correct the date issue, by adding a date picker. I've also documented a free fix to remove the AM/PM field.
