Translating Docs Phrases

You can translate all of the informational words and phrases that appear in your Docs sites into the language of your choosing. Each Docs site has its own translation settings which allows you to maintain a separate Docs site for each language you would like to publish in. 

You can also use this feature to simply change the wording on the site if you would prefer different phrases. For example, you can change  Search the knowledge base to Search the FAQ if that works better for you. 

Head over to Manage → Docs, then click on the Translate tab in the left-hand sidebar. Enter the translation or text that you would like to show on your Docs site. Click the blue Save button at the bottom of the page when you're finished. 

Weglot Integration

The folks over at Weglot built out an integration to dynamically and easily translate the content on your Docs site with a quick click of a button! Once you've got everything set up and running, Weglot will automatically translate your site for you, so no need to set up separate sites for each individual language that you need to support. Check it out in action below.

Transifex Integration

Our friends over at Transifex also have an integration that translates your public Docs sites in a jiffy. Simply install the app in Help Scout, go through the setup process, and once you're up and running, Transifex will automatically collect content from your Docs site for translation - no coding required! You can poke around on a sample site here or check out a quick snippet of it in action below.
