Website widget translations, what do they mean and which features are related?

In the Website Widget, there are many texts and sentences we have added for you. All these sentences are related to channels and/or features in the widget and can be adjusted to fit the styling of your organization. In this article, we will show you which translation relates to which feature.

Where to find the translations?

To adjust texts of the widget, or to add a new language, you take the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings —> Website widget and click on the widget you want to adjust.
  2. Navigate to Translation.
  3. Click on the language you would like to adjust, or
  4. add a new language via the dropdown menu.

Where do the translations relate to?

Every channel has its own translations in the widget, below you will find per channel which translations relate to what feature.

Since the field of the translation is related to a specific feature in the widget, it is important to not change the order of the translations.

💡 Note: the translations without a number are no longer active in the widget and can be ignored.


The general translations of the widget are not related to any channel and will always be shown at the top of the website widget:

Social messaging channels

All the social messaging channels (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Telegram) have a similar text in the widget.

When you add such a channel to the widget, these texts will appear here:


It is also possible to add a contact form to your website widget. This is the "Email channel" of the widget. You can choose to add your own custom fields, but the name, email, and message field of this form are fixed and the contents of those fields can be adjusted in the translations:


The chat feature of the website widget is the most-used and most adjustable feature of the live chat. It has lots of translations, but these will only if the relatable feature is enabled.

When "show online status is enabled" a message field will appear next to the widget when it's closed. The text in that field can be adjusted in field 9.
