Next, copy and paste the code below into the "Link" box. Change "en" to the 2-letter language code for this language.


4) Reload your Squarespace website

After saving the changes from the previous steps, reload your Squarespace website. Localize will automatically detect the content on your website and and save it to your Localize account.

5) Send content to Translators

Then, head on over to the Localize Phrases page to begin approving phrases for translation.

That’s it!

Refresh your Squarespace page again, and click the language link you added to your website in Step 3. This will instantly translate your page!
