How to Add a Multilingual Cookie Consent Banner

If you have a website that has a multilingual target audience, then it is important that your cookie consent banner is also available in multiple languages. You can display a multilingual cookie consent banner with the CookieYes cookie consent solution.

To get started with CookieYes, create your account for free.

After you sign up, you will be directed to a setup screen. During the setup, you will be able to select the Default Language of your cookie banner.

Your default language is the one in which your cookie banner will be displayed in when users have not set a language preference.

To implement a multilingual banner that is auto-translated as per your visitor’s preferred language, follow the steps below.

Note

Auto-translation is available for Basic, Pro and Ultimate plans. You will be able to display an auto-translated banner in any language as per your user’s language preference settings.
