Not all text in X-Cart is orgaized in labels, as you may have noticed already. There are also menus, static pages and news that are translated a bit differenly. To translate menus, static pages and news you’ll need to switch the cart admin to the language of translation, find the element you need to translate and edit it.

A corresponding language package should be installed to proceed with further translations.

Let’s consider each case in details.

Translating menus

To translate menus go to the Content > Menus section of your store admin area, switch the admin language to the one you need (it will be German in our sample), translate the menu(s) value and save the changes.
