How do I manually set the language of my Web Widget (Classic)?
By default, the widget language is set automatically based on the customer's browser, see more in this article: What language do my customers see the widget in on my website? If you would like to manually set the language of the widget instead, follow the directions below for the widget you have on your account.
If you use the Web Widget (Classic) with a Support account
To customize the Web Widget (Classic) so that it always appears in a specific language regardless of your customer's browser language, use the setLocale command as in the example below.
zE('webWidget', 'setLocale', 'LANGUAGE_CODE');
For more information, see the developer documentation for the setLocale settings. For a complete set of instructions, see the article: Advanced customization of the Web Widget (Classic).
If you have a Chat-only Web Widget (Classic) account
