Wappointment’s default language is English, this said, you can translate all of the strings of the booking form that your clients will be using.

Editing texts in booking form

In order to do that simply:

  • head to Wappointment > Settings > Appearance
  • Start editing the texts, in your language or simply rephrase the existing strings to your liking
  • Go through each steps of the booking widget in order to review all of the string

Now this type of method is quick and easy, and it will work well for one site. But if you want your translation to be long lasting and be available for all of the sites you will install Wappointment on, you should read on.
