Changing the widget language

Note: This guide applies only to the Chat widget from Chat-only accounts, not from Chat+Support accounts. See About Chat account types in the Zendesk help.

Zopim auto detects the predominant language used on your site, but it doesn't work perfectly all the time. To set your language on your chat bar with the API, simply insert the following code right after your Zopim live chat script, and update "en" with the language code of your choice. The default used here is for English.

<script type="text/javascript">  $zopim(function() {    $zopim.livechat.setLanguage('en');  });</script>

  Other languages codes that have been translated are:
