Change the language of the form

Needed permissions: owner, manage or edit & publish

You can display forms from Consent Manager in different languages. By default, they are written in English, but you can change that.

Before you start

Here are some things to know before you set additional form languages:

  • The form is displayed in the language of the visitor’s browser. If the form doesn’t have such language, then it is displayed in the default language set in Consent Manager.
  • A visitor may switch to a different language by using a drop-down menu on the form. If a visitor changes the language, then this language will be set as default for future displays.

Change the language

To change the language of the form, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Consent Manager.
  2. Navigate to Settings.
  3. In Languages, click Add language.
  4. Languages in Consent Manager in Piwik PRO.
  5. Select the language and click Save.
  6. Navigate to Consent templates.
  7. In the right, upper corner click Form language English and pick a different language.
  8. Change language in a consent form in Consent Manager.
  9. Edit each template that you want to use and write copy in the selected language.
  10. When you’re done, navigate to Settings.
  11. In Consent form language, click a three-dots icon next to the new language of the form.
  12. Click Activate. Now the form will be displayed in this language as well.
  13. Activate a language in Consent Manager.
  14. Optionally, set the new language as default. The form will then be displayed in this language, and a visitor will be able to switch to a different language.
