Square Online - Integration / Setup
Translate your Square Online website
Here, we'll walk you through integrating Weglot into your Square Online website, available on the Square Online App Marketplace.
Prerequisite: You need a live and published Square Online store to integrate Weglot.
1. Find Weglot Translate on the Square App Marketplace
Search for the Weglot on the Square App Marketplace. Click on the blue 'Get Started' button.
2. Create your Weglot account
You’ll then be prompted to create a Weglot account. Enter your email address and a password to start your 10-day free trial. This account is where you can view and manage all of your translations.
Then, give access to Weglot Translate when prompted, by clicking ' Allow'.
3. Choose your website and add your languages
Once you’ve created your Weglot account, you will be asked to select the site you want to translate. Click ' Save'.
Then, you will be asked to select an existing Weglot project or create a new one. Once you've chosen your project, click ' Save'.
Finally, enter the original language of your store and the language(s) you’d like to translate it into. Find our supported languages here.
Click ' Save'.
4. Your Square Online store is now translated!
Your store is now translated. Visit your store to see your automatically added language switcher.
You will see the language switcher button appear at the very bottom right. When you change the language, your translated pages will appear. If you prefer having the button in a different area, click here to learn how to change its position.
5. Create language subdomains for improved SEO
The final stage is to add your language subdomains or subdirectories for improved SEO, e.g. https://fr.mywebsite.com/ (subdomain) or https://mywebsite.com/fr (subdirectory).
Prerequisite: The subdomain or subdirectory integration method requires accessing the DNS records of your website domain, so you will need to have purchased your own domain name prior to this step. If you haven’t bought a domain name yet, do not choose this integration method.
You can watch our tutorial videos from popular domain name providers to help you with this step.
In your Weglot Dashboard, go to your Settings > Setup page and toggle on ‘Enable Subdomains or subdirectories'. Follow the steps on the screen.
At this stage, you should be able to create new entries in the DNS section on your screen.
- Select CNAME as the type of entry
- Enter “en” (for those adding English) as the host
- Point it to the “xxx.translate-sp.weglot.io” value that will be displayed
Then go back to your Weglot Dashboard and click on the green ‘ Check DNS’ button to check the process has been completed.
If you need any help updating your DNS records, you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s it! Your Square Online store is now fully translated, including language-specific subdomains or subdirectories.
