1. Install the Localize Code Snippet.

Go to: Settings > Integrations > Custom Javascript in your HelpKit dashboard.


2. Add the following Localize Code Snippet to the Custom Javascript section.

  (function(d, script) {
      script = d.createElement('script');
      script.type = 'text/javascript';
      script.async = true;
      script.onload = function(){
          !function(a){if(!a.Localize){a.Localize={};for(var e=["translate","untranslate","phrase","initialize","translatePage","setLanguage","getLanguage","detectLanguage","getAvailableLanguages","untranslatePage","bootstrap","prefetch","on","off","hideWidget","showWidget","getSourceLanguage"],t=0;t<e.length;t++)a.Localize[e[t]]=function(){}}}(window);

            key: '[[app:key]]',
            rememberLanguage: true,
            saveNewPhrasesFromSource: true
            // other options go here, separated by commas
      script.src = '';

3. Add Initialization Options

Add any desired options to the Localize.initialize() call above, check here for the full list of possible options.

Some popular options include:

  • autoApprove - use to fully automate your translation workflow
  • localizeImages - allows for localization of images in your site

4. Save your changes.

5. Reload your website.

  1. Visit your website in a browser.
  2. Select one of your target languages using the language-switching widget.
  3. Refresh the page.
  4. Lather, rinse, repeat, for each page on your site.

Localize will automatically begin to detect new content on the pages that you visit, and will bring it into your dashboard.

6. Approve phrases

Then head on over to the Manage Phrases page to approve phrases in the Localize dashboard.

7. Phrases not showing up?

If you are not seeing phrases show up in your Pending bin in the Localize dashboard, follow the troubleshooting instructions here.
