How do I automatically redirect my visitors to their own language?

In this article, you'll find how to automatically redirect your visitors to their own language.

Weglot provides an "auto-redirect" feature. When activated, it automatically redirects the visitor to his language, based on his browser's language,  not their IP address.

1) To activate this feature, go to your Weglot dashboard > Project Settings:

Once you activated it, visitors will be automatically redirected to their own languages (if you're managing this language). However, if you don't support the visitor's language, he'll be redirected to the original language of your website  (the fallback)

If you are using WordPress, you can go to your WordPress admin > Weglot Plugin > Other options > Then check the "Auto redirection" option and click on "Save Changes"

If you are using Shopify, you can go to your Shopify Dashboard > Apps > Weglot translate > Other options > then check the "Auto Switch" option and click on "Save".

Finally, be aware that the browser is storing a language cookie, so the website will always be displayed in the language version regarding your last visit on the website.

So, if visitors already visited your website in other languages than the one regarding their browser, they will be redirected to the version regarding their last visit (unless they cleared their cookies).

In conclusion, if it doesn't seem to work, clear your cookies, cache, and check back in an incognito window.
