About Languages

If your domain supports multiple language support, you will need to set up your domain's language options. Website tool activities will make use of these languages in order to display the right activities for the right language displayed in your domain.

Also, if your domain supports multiple languages, you must set up data tracking for each language.

4. Expand the Type drop-down menu and choose how you want the Tracking Script to detect your website's language.

You can choose Cookie to detect your website's language via a cookie name and its value, or choose URL path to detect the language via your website's URL.

It's important that you choose either an URL path or cookies to detect your website's language, and that you don't try to use both. This is hardly a common setup but, if you set up two methods of detecting languages, your Website tool activities will not work as expected.

If your website's default language doesn't have a specific URL path, you may set the default language with a URL path and simply enter a slash (/) as the path.

If you choose Cookie, enter the cookie name and value that corresponds.

Repeat this process for the languages that you support for very domain that you may have in your Section.

Once you save your language, you can start collecting visitor data from those who browse the domain in that specific language.

How to Set a Default Language

If your website's default language doesn't have a specific URL path, you may set the default language with a URL path and simply enter a slash (/) as the path.

Follow the instructions described above on Adding a Language to a Domain and save your language. APSIS One will show a message confirming that this is now your default language for the case in which no other languages are detected.
