How to Change the Language of Your Cookie Consent Banner Using CookieYes?

If you run a multilingual website, it allows your visitors to switch between various languages. When choosing their preferred language, the users would reasonably expect to have all your website elements, including the cookie consent banner in the language of their preference.

So when a user changes the default/current language of your website using the language switcher in your main navigation, CookieYes will instantly, automatically convert the default language of your consent banner to the language of the website.

Check out our setup guide to get started with CookieYes!

Note
Make sure you upgrade to the CookieYes Premium plan (either Basic or Pro) to use the auto-translation feature with your cookie consent banner.

    Step 2: Navigate to Site Settings > Click the dropdown to select your preferred language.
    CookieYes Site Settings - Default language Step 3: Click Get script > Click Copy code to copy the script > Paste it between the <head> and </head> tags of your website prior to all other scripts.

Enable auto-translation for cookie consent banners on multilingual websites

With CookieYes, the language of your cookie consent banner will be automatically changed based on the language selected by the end-users.

Note
If a user switches to a language that is not supported by CookieYes, your consent banner will be displayed in English or any other language that you’ve set as default.


Just by upgrading your subscription plan to Basic or Pro, you can enable your cookie consent banner to automatically change its language according to the choice of your website users.

To publish the cookie banner, you need to paste the CookieYes script to your website. If you have not already done so,
  • Navigate to Site Settings > Click Get script > Click Copy code to copy the script > Paste it between the <head> and </head> tags of your website prior to all other scripts.
Hence, the cookie consent banner will be published on your website. This is how it would look like:
