Wix Blocks: Translating Your App

2 min read
Wix Blocks is open to all Wix Studio users. To get access to Blocks, join Wix Studio.
When you translate a Blocks app, it is important to understand that Wix sites has two types of translations:
  • The live site language
  • The account (Editor) language.
For example, a developer might want to have German as their account (Editor) language, but the site she is developing is intended for French speakers, so the site language will be French. 
When you install an app that has Multilingual on a site without editor-side Multilingual, the app's content is translated to the language of the site. If the site has Multilingual installed, the content is translated to the language on the language picker of the site. Content is only translatable into the languages set by the site owner to be available for their users. 

The panel text is always translated into the default language of the account.

Set up your app for translation

Select Multilingual in the App section of the top menu. 
This adds the language picker to your Blocks stage.
