Finally, you can have a marketplace where customers can browse in their own language! Dokan is now announced compatible by the WPML team!
Why Multilingual Marketplaces are on high demand?
When your marketplace is global, it is kind of imperative that you can offer them the site and the features of your marketplace in their native language. This kind of localization creates a sense of trust and familiarity. With this in mind, say if your marketplace is in English, it is still not read or spoken by many people from many different countries.
So, the chances are, if a customer like that lands on your marketplace, he or she might bounce right away if the marketplace is not in a language he or she understands.
Which is why WPML compatibility has been on high demand since we launched Dokan back in 2012.
How much can it translate?
The multilingual support will fully cover:
- Product Categories
- Vendor Products
- Product Attributes
- Product Variations
- Dokan Vendor Dashboard
- Store Listing page
- Store pages (Storefronts)
We are working on more improvements
Although, this support will come at the cost of installing several dependent plugins that will make it work. The process isn't still quite user-friendly yet, but we are working on it. Also, we hope to update the support so that in the future vendors can translate their products from the frontend.
Some of the markets are already using it
