LangShop allows displaying different version of your multilingual store. You can bring customers from Canada or France to the French locale, as well as visitors who have Italian browser language to the Italian version 🇮🇹.
From your LangShop admin, go to Settings > Languages > Mapping.
LangShop offers three types of detection:
- store language
- browser language
- visitor country
1. Store language
When customers visit your online store for the first time, they look at your store language which is set by default in LangShop Mapping.
You can find your Store language in Shopify Settings > Store languages > Default language. This information is also available in Langshop Settings > Languages > Original language.
2. Browser language
You can redirect visitors automatically to the language based on their browser language.
Select browser language detection type. If you want to enable automatic redirection, select
Force redirect checkbox and save changes. Please pay your attention that Google recommends avoiding automatic redirection. Read the full guide in Google docs here.
You can add more browser languages and link them to each language you manage in your online store. For example, customers who have French browser will get automatically redirected to the French version, if browser language is Italian, then visitors get to Italian locale.
- From your LangShop admin, go to Settings > Languages > Switchers.
- On the left sidebar menu, find Recommendations > click Unpublish to hide the banner or pop-up message which is displaying at your storefront. Recommendations help customers switch between versions manually. Therefore, you can't enable force redirection in Mapping.
3. Visitor country
Another option to redirect customers automatically is to enable visitor country detection type. LangShop Mapping feature allows redirect customers automatically using geo IP detection. When customers visit your store for the first time from Spain or Mexico, they will get to Spanish version directly.
Select visitor country detection type. Check the box -
You can add more countries to the default list of countries that you want to enable for automatic redirection based on user location and link them to each language you have in your online store.
If you want to stop using language redirects, from your LangShop admin, go to Settings > Languages > Mapping > Detection type > Store language > Save.
