  3. In the Public content section, add Customer-facing text in the appropriate language.

Your localized Booking page or Master page is ready to be shared with Customers or published on your website.

NoteIf you have Customers in different countries or Customers who speak a variety of languages, you can use a Booking page or Master page for each Customer segment and repeat the same process for each page based on the target culture, language, country, or geographic location. 

To ensure that each of your Customer segments experiences their localized scheduling process, you must share or publish the correct link or page with the corresponding audience.

Localizing Customer notifications

  1. In the Notification template editor, create a Custom notification template and translate it into any language.  
  2. In the Event type Customer notifications section, select the Custom template you've created.

In the Notification templates editor, Dynamic fields are shown in English only in the editor, and will be translated into the set locale when Custom notifications are sent to the Customer. User notifications are always sent in English.
