Widget Translation

Widget Settings

For the majority of our widgets, you can select the language within the widget editor. The Language setting can always be found under "General Settings" from here you can define which language you would like to display the widget in.

Note: This doesn't translate the reviews themselves, you can define this through Review Tagging which is discussed further on in this article.

🚨 IMPORTANT 🚨

Not all of the widgets support all languages. If your desired language is not available, contact support & we can provide translation keys for most of our widgets to add to the code.

Badge Widget

This widget has to be manually translated. The translation keys are included with the widget code. If you replace the text within the speech marks to the correct translation. For example translateReviews:" Reviews", would become translateReviews:" Bewertungen", if you wanted this to display in German.

<script src="https://widget.reviews.co.uk/badge-modern/dist.js"></script>
<div id="badge-230" style="max-width:230px;"></div>
<script>
reviewsBadgeModern('badge-230', {
store: 'STORE-ID',
primaryClr: '#000000',
starsClr: '#000000'
,
translateReviews:" Reviews",
translateAverage:" Average",
translateDecimal:"."
});
</script>

Text Banner Widget

This widget has to be manually translated. The translation keys are included with the widget code. If you replace the text within the speech marks to the correct translation. For example translateReviews:" Reviews", would become translateReviews:" Bewertungen", if you wanted this to display in German.

<div id="text-banner-widget"></div>

richSnippetReviewsWidgets("text-banner-widget", {
