Multilingual store

Kentico allows you to have your website content translated into multiple languages. In your multilingual stores this applies to products, which can have different language versions. The system can display to your customers different language versions of your on-line store content automatically based on various settings. Your customers can also switch between languages manually using dedicated web parts.

Multiple language versions

If you enabled multilingual support in your on-line store (in Sites -> Edit () site -> Cultures), you can see a dedicated section with language selection options above the product sections tree. Using these options, you can switch between available language versions of the currently selected section or product. The Languages column in the products list indicates which language versions (cultures) are currently available on your site.

Language version comparison:

You can click Compare to switch to the language version comparison mode and edit language versions side-by-side. However, currently you can localize only product fields in General tab -> Custom properties (except for those added to the Ecommerce - SKU table), and the following fields in General tab -> General:

  • Product name
  • Short description
  • Description

Besides, you can localize the Section name field when editing a product section.

Comparing different language versions of a product

Only a product that you created the recommended way (i.e. that you created as SKU + associated product type page) can be localized.

This means that a separate product object (i.e. stand-alone SKU) cannot have different language versions.
