Introduction to languages in Summer Cart

Summer Cart shopping cart prides itself on the extensive multi-language features it offers to both store customers and store administrators. To help you easily manage languages throughout the entire store Summer Cart separates translations of customer data from interface translations.


You can translate both all customer data and all interface texts in all defined languages.


>> Open Summer Cart admin panel

>> Go to the Settings menu, under 'Languages and Currencies' click on Languages link.


Translations of customer data – overview

Summer Cart has an intuitive approach to translations of customer data and allows you to add multilingual descriptions on the spot with the help of 'Language selection bar'. 'Language selection bar' appears on the top of every screen where you create/edit a product, a category, a product option, a manufacturer, a country, a state, a tax, a rich text page and many others. See the screenshot below.
