1. Insert the Code Snippet

Copy and paste the following code snippet in the <head> tag in your website, in all pages that you want to Localize.

<script src="https://global.localizecdn.com/localize.js"></script>
<script>!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);</script>

<script>
  Localize.initialize({
    key: '[[app:key]]', 
    rememberLanguage: true,
    // other options go here, separated by commas
  });
</script>

2. 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

3. 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 in your site.

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

4. Approve phrases

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

5. 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.
