Localizing eCommerce Shop Navigation Links

Dynamic localization is a powerful tool. The DirectScale Platform manages localization with String Keys that you assign Text Values for every configured language. To keep consistent translation across the Platform, you can extend this localization feature to your added eCommerce Shop navigation links.

This feature is also available for Web Office: Localizing Web Office Navigation Links.

Adding a String Key to a Navigation Link

Admin: eCommerce Admin
Page: Retail Shop Configuration > Site Navigation
URL: [CLIENTID].retailadmin.directscale.com/#/Navigation
Permission: Site Navigation

For each added navigation link:

  1. Click the Pencil icon. The Edit Link pop-up window opens.

    Edit navigation link
  2. Replace the Link Name with a String Key of your choice. String Keys are typically formatted in lowercase letters and underscores (_) for spaces. For example, who_we_are.

    Edit Link pop-up

    Important: Search for the intended String Key name on the Localization page to ensure it’s unique.

  3. Click SAVE.
