Questions and answers from the Weglot team

Couple of questions - Weglot

Hi team,

I've stumbled upon your great app, and I'm considering using it on our website.
I have a couple of questions that I'm hoping you can answer.

  1. If I got it correctly, Welgot automatically translates all content, and we can edit the translations later on? Can we install it and not show translations live on the website until we complete the review process?

  2. Language is shown based on customers browser language, but they can also choose the language themselves?

  3. Does Weglot cover translating all the apps - like Yopto reviews, popups?

    ​ you​

Thanks for your message.

  1. When you set Weglot up, all you have to do to generate translations is to visit all your pages in translated languages. After that, you'll be able to edit translations by using:

  • Translations list, to modify them from your Weglot Dashboard
  • Visual Editor, to modify them directly from your website
    Get more info here: How to edit my translations?

    If you're using Shopify integration, you can use our 'Make Private' mode that allows you to prevent translations from appearing on your website until you finish your editions. More info here: Shopify - What is the private mode?

    If not, you can prevent translations from appearing until they are well edited. To do so, you have to go to your Weglot Dashboard > Project Settings and uncheck the 'Automatic translations' checkbox.

    Once disabled, only human translations will be displayed on your website.

  1. By default, your customers can choose the language themselves (among the one you selected for them). However, Weglot provides the 'auto-redirect' feature that automatically redirects the visitor to his language, based on his browser's language.
    Once you activated it, visitors will be automatically redirected to their own languages (if selected in your destination languages). However, if you don't support the visitor's language, he'll be redirected to the original language of your website.

  2. It may not be translated by Weglot because it has trouble translating dynamic content.
    However, we add a new feature that allows you to do it manually just by adding the class (for Shopify) or the text itself (for WordPress).
