Installing a New Language Pack in nopCommerce

The Internet has become the central place where consumers look for products, services or information.  In order to get a competitive advantage, offering a multilingual website/store presents itself as a high-impact way to expand the client base for many businesses because a good number of Internet users around the world are not just English speakers.

nopcommerce hostingCreating a multilingual online store with nopCommerce is relatively easy because it offers a user-friendly feature that allows store owners to install new language packs from the administration area. Here, I’ll show you how.

To add a new language pack, login to your nopCommerce store site as an administrator.

Go to: Administration -> Dashboard


Navigate to: Configuration -> Languages



You can download new language packs from Official nopCommerce Marketplace.


When you download a language pack, you will get a XML file (if you have a zip file, unzip it).



Unique SEO code – This means a two letter language SEO code that will be used to generate URLs like when you have more than one published language.

Note: “SEO friendly URLs with multiple languages” option should be enabled in Configuration -> Settings -> General Settings -> Localization settings tab.

Right-to-Left – This is needed for languages like Arabic, Hebrew, etc.

Note: The Default Clean theme supports RTL (have an appropriate CSS style file). This option affects only the public store.



I hope this helps you localize your store and expand your customer base.
