How to automatically translate WooCommerce

If you have a WooCommerce store and want to easily and automatically configure it into various languages, you can install the following plugin for WordPress: GTranslate. With this plugin, a widget will be installed in your store from which users will be able to change the language of the website.

Below, we provide a step-by-step explanation of how to configure this plugin in your online store.

  1. Install the Plugin into your WordPress

Log into your online store and go to Plugins using the left-hand menu. Once on this screen, click on Add new.

In the search tool, write GTranslate to find the plugin you want to install and click on Install now.

Once you have installed the plugin, click the Activate button on the same screen.

  1. Configure the plugin settings

Go back to plugins from the left-hand menu and search for the plugin you have just installed. Click on settings.

From here, you can configure different aspects, such as the appearance of the widget, the main language you are going to translate from, as well as deciding where to place the widget within your website, whether this is through a floating selector or on the website menu.

Next, select the languages that you want your online store to be translated into.

On the right-hand side you can see a preview of the widget. You can also change the colours to adapt it to the style of your online store.


After completing the configuration, click on Save changes.


Go to your website and check that the widget appears with the selected languages.

If the widget does not appear in your WooCommerce store, or the changes you have made cannot be viewed after a period of time, you may need to delete the website cache. 

Your online store can now be viewed automatically in the languages you have selected.
