Hello,

Ecwid is available in many languages. Built-in translations can be enabled in Ecwid Control Panel > System Settings > General > Languages page in your Ecwid backend.

Ecwid built-in translations work this way: your customers will see the language, which is most suitable of all the languages enabled by the store owner. This language is automatically chosen based on the customer's browser settings. If there are no appropriate languages enabled, the default language is shown.

For example if there are 3 enabled languages in your store (Spanish, English and German) and Spanish language is set as default then:
- if your customers' browser is set up in English language - your storefront is shown in English for them,
- if in German - your storefront is shown in German for them,
- and if in French for example - your storefront is shown in Spanish for them since Spanish is the default language in your store.

This is how build-in translations work in Ecwid. Unfortunately there is no build-in functionality in Ecwid that could let your customers choose language using some selectors.

Please refer to this article to learn more about localization in Ecwid: http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta...onttranslation
