Multilanguage Popup

Exclusive feature available in the Advanced and Plus Plans.

Consider that following the upgrade of your plan, it's essential to proactively translate your geolocation popup by adding your copies for each language. If you don't set it up, we will continue to display the default text for all your users.

In Orbe, you have the flexibility to customize the popup in multiple languages, ensuring your users receive the best experience based on their browser language.

This tutorial will walk you through the process, explaining how it functions and guiding you on how to activate it.

How does the multilanguage popup work?

After configuring the popup in multiple languages, if a user's browser language matches one available, that version will be displayed, considering it as the user's preferred language. Here are some examples:

  • If your store has English, French, and Spanish, and a user's browser is set to Spanish, the popup will be displayed in Spanish, even if they visit from a UK IP address.

  • If the browser is in a language not available in your store, the popup will be shown in the default language you set up in the Orbe editor.

How do I translate the geolocation popup?

The translation of the popup into different languages, recommending the appropriate experience in the user's preferred language, is an exclusive functionality available in our paid plans. This feature is not included in the free plan. If you wish to configure it, you will need to perform the corresponding upgrade.

When you upgrade your plan, the Translations section will become accessible. In this section, you will find all the components available within the Shopify Theme Editor: title, text, helper text, CTA, and fallback text.

At the top right, the configured language will be displayed along with a selector that enables customization for other languages.

Keep in mind that the popup can only be translated into languages available within the store. If a language is not listed, it is recommended to go to Shopify Markets and add the language as available through one of the translation apps.

Additionally, you'll be able to view the Default Text, which has been configured in the Shopify Theme Editor and will be displayed whenever the user's language is not available in the store.

Lastly, you can also see the available dynamic variables that you can use in any of the sections. These include:

  • {country}. Displays the customer's country. Example: Spain

  • {currency_code}. Displays the country's currency code. Example: EUR

  • {currency_symbol}. Displays the country's currency symbol. Example: €

Use a template

Our geolocation popup is available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, and Swedish. If you prefer to use our default texts for these languages, simply click 'Use a template,' and we will populate the form with the appropriate texts. You can also customize these texts to align the message with your brand. However, please note that if you wish to set up the popup in any other languages, we don't have a template available, and you will need to input the texts from scratch.
