Unleashing the Power of Weglot to Localize Webflow

Webflow localization through Weglot

It is no wonder that goods and services are now offered overseas with the growth of companies and startups internationally. That is where we need to localize websites.

Before diving deep into this topic, you will understand what localization means and why that is needed.

Once you have a clear idea of the meaning of localization, we will then cover Webflow localization (Webflow’s native solution), and then we will cover third-party tools that we can use.

The next step will be our analysis of Weglot, a Webflow localization tool. We'll examine its benefits and drawbacks. Apart from that, we'll see how it aids companies in localizing their Webflow websites.

Now, let us get started.

What is localization?

Localization is a solution to make your website personalized for a worldwide audience. In other words, localization is making your website multilingual so that you can reach a wider audience and can better offer your products or services worldwide.

Is localization the same as multilingualism?

Multilingualism is a subset of localization. In addition to just making your website multilingual for all countries, localization includes the following:

Content adjustments that are based on the user’s location – For example, an image from France should only be shown when the website is loaded in the French language, and that is something that is beyond the scope of just translating your website to another language.

Showing country-specific content – Showing different testimonials for different countries or showing and hiding sections based on their relevance.

Is there a native solution for localizing?

In 2023, Webflow launched its native solution of localizing websites and making them multilingual within the Designer of Webflow.

How does website translation by Webflow work?

Use the locale view option in the upper-left corner of the Designer to choose the desired locale before using machine translation to translate text content. Then, to convert any text element to the appropriate language, right-click on it and select translate to (locale language) or, you can right-click on the Body element to translate the entire page at once.

Price and monthly limit for Webflow’s localization native solution

The monthly cost of the essential plan is  $12/location (USD).
