I want my PrestaShop homepage slideshow to show in different languages.
No problem! If your PrestaShop store supports multiple languages, this is easy to do. In this example, we will use 'en', 'fr', 'it' and 'de'.
Simply upload the same image to your Homepage section 4 times. Then:
- set 1 slide to Lang 'en' and add English text to 'Title' and 'Description' fields
- set 1 slide to Lang 'fr' and add French text to 'Title' and 'Description' fields
- set 1 slide to Lang 'it' and add Italian text to 'Title' and 'Description' fields
- set 1 slide to Lang 'de' and add German text to 'Title' and 'Description' fields
This means no matter which version of your PrestaShop store customers visit they will see correct language over homepage slides.
