Welcome to the Help Center

Multi-Language Support

We offer multi-language support for service names, service descriptions, intake form fields, and automated message content. For franchise businesses, the languages are defined at the parent level. Clients can have a preferred language (set in the client profile or in the new client creation flow), that governs the language used when booking online or receiving automated messages. 

By default, the booking widget, kiosk, and automated messages will show information in the company's default language. It is up to you to translate your service names, descriptions, intake forms, and marketing copy to the languages you want to support. 

  1. If the client selects French: MyTime UI is in English. Service name and descriptions, intake form fields, and automated messages are in French because you created content in that language.
  2. If the client selects Spanish: MyTime UI is in English. Service name and descriptions, intake form fields, and automated messages are in English because you did NOT create content in that language.

In this article, we will learn how to do the following:

  3. When the modal opens, select the drop-down menu in the top right corner 9194079-45040fb92c76420ac8b9549d8e70f18d.png

You can repeat these steps to add content for each supported language. 

Translate Custom Fields on Intake Form

When setting up your custom fields, a language selector will be displayed to allow changing the name of fields and content. 

To access your custom client fields:

  1. Navigate to Clients > Customize Custom Fields 9701021-97037ef338607bb0936338c4dba03bd4.png
  2. Select the Add Field link 9701147-c1592308fdd5a059aaa8377fa9b6b248.png
  3. Select the field type, add the content and save
  4. Expand the field that you just created 9701213-14e15e19a202b33f007316bbfd94fd3f.png
  5. You will see the language selector in the top-right corner to select the language you would like to translate.  9701264-05a0965ff2817def087d7e32196e6ab4.png
  6. Once you have selected the language, you can go ahead and add the translated content for the selected language then save your changes.  

When a client is completing the intake form on your booking widget or kiosk, the content will be translated based on the language selected. If no translation was added for a custom field, we will use your account's primary language. 

For example, your primary language is English. When setting up your intake form, you didn't translate the content for other supported languages. On the booking widget or kiosk, if the client selects Spanish in the language selector menu, the custom fields will be shown in English.

Translate Content on Automated Messages Templates   

  1. Navigate to Marketing > Automated Messages

  5.  Add the translated content for the selected language and save

When a client books an appointment, the automated messages they receive will be based on their preferred language. If no translation was added for a language they selected, we will use your account's primary language. 

Setting a Client’s Preferred Language

By default, when a client is created we will use your account's primary language as their preferred language. For instance, if your primary language is English, then English will be selected as your client's preferred language. This can be adjusted at any time directly on the client's profile.

Any changes made on the language selector on the intake form, booking widget, or kiosk will update the client's preferred language. For instance, if when booking online, Spanish is selected in the language selector, Spanish will be set as their preferred language on their profile.

To set a customer's preferred language on their profile:

  1. Navigate to the Clients tab 9013432-d4a1ab773e24d1e2b34dc276a10cdd77.png
