If you’re one of the thousands of Square Online users looking to take your store international, then you’d be right in thinking adding languages to your site is the first step!

Ready to translate your store? This quick guide explains exactly how to get a multilingual Square Online store up and running using the Weglot app available on the Square Online App Marketplace.
You’ll need a live and published Square Online store to use Weglot.
Search for the Weglot on the Square App Marketplace. Click on ‘Get Started’.
You’ll then be prompted to create a Weglot account. Enter your email address and a password to start your 10-day free trial.
Then, give access to Weglot Translate when prompted, by clicking ‘Allow’.
Once you’ve created your Weglot account, you’ll then be asked to give your project a name and then enter the original language of your store and the language(s) you’d like to translate it into.
Your store is now translated. Visit your store to see your automatically added language switcher.
The final stage is to add your subdomains for improved SEO, e.g. https://fr.mywebsite/.
In your Weglot Dashboard, go to your ‘Settings’ > ‘Set up’ and toggle on ‘Enable Subdomains. You will need to have access to your DNS records to do this, these are accessed via your domain name provider.
You can watch our tutorial videos from popular domain name providers to help you with this step.
Follow the steps on the screen and in your domain name provider create new CNAME entries with the ‘host’ as the 2 letter language code shown on the screen, and then point it to websites.weglot.com. Save the entries.
Then go back to your Weglot Dashboard and click on the green ‘Check DNS’ button to check the process has been completed (this can sometimes take up to 10 minutes).
That’s it! Your Square Online store is now fully translated, including language-specific subdomains.
