  • Resolved Gioweb


    Hi, Have you ever thought about giving the capability to translate, title, and product description? Ecwid depending on the browser language shows interface translations for dozens of countries. Giving the opportunity to manually translate product descriptions would be a fantastic thing. What do you think? thank you!!

    Ecwid Team is here, thank you for the question!

    Indeed, currently Ecwid store fronts are translated to more than 45 languages, so your store can be displayed in different languages according to the customer’s browser langusge. More details on this question you can find in the following article from Ecwid Help Center:

    However, when it comes to product descriptions things get a little more complicated as each product has a unique text added to it as a description. We appreciate your feedback on this matter and we’ll pass it to our product management team for review.

    Right now there are a couple ways you can use to show the Ecwid product descriptions in different languages:

    1) format the product description in HTML and use special CSS codes.
    This way you’ll be able to add the product description in different languages to your products and show them to your customers according to the browser language they use. Here’s an example of how to achieve this result (for the descriptions in English and Spanish):
    – go to your Ecwid Control Panel > Catalog > Products > product details page, click the “<>” option in the top right corner of the product description field to see the HTML version of the description.

    – add the descriptions in different languages using the special HTML tags and save the changes:

    <div class="ecwid-custom-product-descr en">
    The product description in English.
    <div class="ecwid-custom-product-descr es">
    The product description in Spanish.

    – go to your Ecwid Control Panel > Settings > Design > Edit Theme button and add the following code to your active CSS theme (after all the existing codes):

    div.ecwid-custom-product-descr {
      display: none; 
    body.ecwid-lang-en div.ecwid-custom-product-descr.en {
      display: block !important; 
    body.ecwid-lang-es {
      display: block !important; 

    If you do not have a custom CSS theme, you can always create one by clicking “Create theme” button in your Settings > Design.

    – save the changes.

    As you do this, the product description will be displayed in English or in Spanish, depending on the customer’s browser language.

    2) use a third-party app from Ecwid app Market to add tabs to product descriptions.
    For example, you can use the app called “Tabber”. This app allows creating tabs in the product description block, so you could set different tabs and add the description in different languages to it.

    We hope this information helps!

    Kind regards,
    Ecwid Team.
