Run my referral program in multiple languages

Last Updated: May 24, 2016 05:45AM UTC

The steps to enable this depend on the type of integration that you are using to connect your store with ReferralCandy.

For all Integration types:
Follow the steps to activate the additional language add-on and select all the languages that you would like your referral program to support.

A. Standard Integration
You will need to specify the advocate's preferred language in the invoice email that is BCC’ed to ReferralCandy (see note at bottom of article for the 2 letter abbreviations)

This can be tagged anywhere in the invoice email and will enable us to identify the preferred language that this advocate would prefer their referral program correspondence going forward.

B. Advanced Integration (JavaScript-Only) / Advanced Integration (JavaScript-Only & Post-Purchase Popup)
You will need to specify the advocate's preferred language as part of the Javascipt Integration (see note at bottom of article for the 2 letter abbreviations)
e.g. data-locale="es" will let us know that you want to use the Spanish template for this Advocate


C. Advanced Integration (API)
You will need to specify the advocate's preferred language as part of the API Integration (see note at bottom of article for the 2 letter abbreviations)
e.g. data-locale="es" will let us know that you want to use the Spanish template for this Advocate


Note: The 2 letter abbreviations for the languages are below and follow the ISO 639-1 standard

  • English (Default): en
  • Chinese (Simplified): zh-CN
  • Chinese (Traditional, HK): zh-HK
  • Chinese (Traditional, TW): zh-TW
  • Danish: da
  • Dutch: nl
  • French: fr
  • German: de
  • Italian: it
  • Japanese: ja
  • Norwegian: no
  • Russian: ru
  • Spanish: es
  • Swedish: sv

If you'd like to run your referral program in a language that is not listed above, you can "map" this unsupported language to one of the existing templates. This is what you have to do:
  1. Stop your campaign so that you don't send out emails while you're still setting them up
  2. Add any additional language above that you will not be using as part of your referral program (e.g. Spanish) from the Store Settings page of your dashboard
  3. Go to the Themes section of your dashboard and select "Edit Layout via HTML / CSS" for any of the campaign pages
  4. Select the additional "Locale" json file from step #1 (e.g. es.json), edit the default language directly for the various page assets, and click Publish Changes when you're done (refer to image below)
  5. To update the language of email assets, you can directly edit the text from within the email editor
  6. For your integration, you should still use the 2 letter abbreviation of the template that you've chosen (i.e. "es" for Spanish)
  7. Re-activate your campaign when your emails & pages assets are all updated
Note: Since we don't fully support the language that you are using, some system error messages will be displayed in the language of the template (i.e. Spanish in this example)
