Wix Multilingual: Adding and Setting Up Wix Multilingual

7 min read
Wix Multilingual lets you present your content in diverse languages, ensuring a global audience can fully engage with your site. Add the app to your site, select your primary site language, and add languages as needed. 
  • Once you've selected your site's main language, you cannot change it to a different language. If this is something you'd like to see in the future, you can vote for that feature
  • We recommend reviewing our list of translatable content before translating your site. 

Step 1 | Add Wix Multilingual

To get started, add Wix Multilingual to your site directly from your editor or your site's dashboard.
