The power of our translation tool

We give you the right tools to ensure that you no longer lose international customers, but turn them into paying customers instead. The configuration in bookingkit is really easy and in this article we explain how you can increase your reach and turnover in just a few steps!

Important notice:

Activating this module will extend which of your content in the bookingkit webapp will be updated and with what regularity.

  • Changes and updates to the content in the default language are made immediately.

  • Changes and updates in other languages can take up to 24 hours.

Activate the module

First have to activate the Content Localization module under Settings -> Modules :

Manage your languages

After activating the module you can view and manage the status of your translations under Settings -> Translations. Please note that it may take a few minutes until everything is set up and ready for configuration right after the activation of the module!

The translation overview appears once all the settings are successfully loaded. The default language is always the language setting for your account. Then you can choose from up to eleven different languages, which ones should be available to your internationa customers. How exactly all this works is explained in the following points.

Add more languages

Once you have added another language to your account, you can adjust some settings:

  1. Would you like an overview of all the translated content? No problem, you are only one click away. Tip: You can simply send this file to an agency for translation if needed!

  2. You can either translate your content manually or, as mentioned in the first point, translate the whole content or have it translated by professionals and then upload the file.

  3. As soon as you have translated 100% of all content, you can also select this language as your default one. What is the point? The default language serves as a reference for all other translations.

  4. You do not want to offer have your content in this a language in the future? Then deactivate it here with just one click.

Add translations

If you decide against translating your content in bulk (refer to point 2), you can also do the translations manually. Just look for the globe symbol in your bookingkit backend. If you have not yet translated all elements at a certain point, you will be notified by a red exclamation mark next to the globe and can add the corresponding translation with just one click:

On the other hand, if a green check mark appears next to the globe, you can sit back and watch as you receive bookings from all around Europe and the world!

Now you might ask yourself at where translation may be necessary! You can either make an export (please refer to point 1) or you manually check all existing content such as your experiences, products, flexible tickets, after-sales mail, company data, etc.

Good to know

bookingkit automatically translates the buttons in all your widgets as well as all customer correspondence via email such as ticket and invoices.

What do my customers see on their end?

Your customers, especially your international ones, will thank you for it! Your offer is now even more accessible and structured which makes it even easier to book.
