Personalize Customer Experience By Customizing Messages In Your Visitors' Preferred Language

Making sure your live chat speaks your visitors' language is a great way to personalize. You can change all those default phrases like 'a moment ago' and 'type a message,' even the welcome messages, into your preferred language.

Once set up, this feature will automatically show the right texts to customers based on their browser language.

To add more languages to your live chat, just head over to Channels, select the channel you want, and go to the Language section.
