There are 180+ languages in Turis for you to choose from, to make sure you can configure and set up languages matching the markets your business operates in.
To access Languages, you start out by clicking on ⚙️ Settings in the menu on the left-hand side followed by clicking on Languages.
When clicking on Languages, two sub categories - Language Selector, and Manage translations - will appear. These sub categories will be explained and accounted for in the following sections.
How to set default language and enable language selector in your shop
Start out by clicking on the sub-category: Language Selector. The window below will appear.
Here you can see the default setting is English.
You can change the default language of your shop by clicking on the dropdown menu. Here you can either search or scroll to find the language you want set as the default language.
Once found and selected, remember to click "Save" to save your changes. The default language in the shop will now be German. This means when Buyers log in the language they see is German.
Allow users to change language from your shop
It is also possible to enable users to change languages themselves. Here you can enable up to 5 languages, which the users can select from in the shop.
By default this setting is not switched on. To switch it simply hit the toggle, so it switches from red to green.
To select other languages than English, click on the dropdown and you will be able to search or scroll for the language you are looking after.
We have now selected German (DE), Spanish (ES), French (FR) and Italian (IT) as the other languages, a user can choose from in the shop. Remember to click "Save" to save your changes.
What will it look like for my customers?
For you customers (Buyers and Sales Agents) it will look this.
A country dropdown selector where the user can select one of the five languages defined and set up.
How to manage and overwrite translations
In Turis you can overwrite the pre-defined and default translation with just a few clicks, to make the wordings and sound fit your taste.
🔔 Please note: your product names, descriptions etc. are NOT translated. It is only default texts and wordings in Turis that are translated.
Further, these translations are only visible to your Buyers and Sales Agents on the shopping page of your Turis shop.
Start out by clicking on the sub-category: Manage translations. The window below will appear.
The overview below is just a snapshot of some of the translations you can manage and translate. If you scroll you will be able to scroll through all of them.
The language is set to English here. To change the language simply click on the dropdown menu and you get to find the language you want to overwrite translations for.
In this case we will stick with English.
If we want to change the wording "All Products" to "All Our Products" you simply just add "Our" in the sentence listed in the white box.
If you want to revert to the original text, just click the blue button on left saying "Revert". It will then revert to the default text.
Once you have completed your edits remember to scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save" to save your changes.
Does this affect the language on emails sent from Turis?
No these translations do not have any effect on the emails sent from Turis. Those emails are by default always sent in English.
