Last month we added Arabic and Hebrew support in White Label and flight search forms. Now it’s time for more great news — we added 9 new languages and 4 more are coming soon. From your comments, we know that this update was long awaited, and we hope it will give you the opportunity to gain more of the various non-English-speaking markets.
In total, our products now support auto complete forms in 28 languages (the new ones are at the end of the list):
- Chinese (simplified and traditional);
- Portuguese (also Brazilian Portuguese);
- Taiwanese (version of Chinese language used in Taiwan);
The last 9 (bolded) languages are the new ones. Already, more than 100,000 words have been translated into them, and we are not planning to stop. Soon we will add 4 new languages: Bulgarian, Latvian, Slovenian and Serbian.
How it works
From the user side, everything is very simple. Now one can type the destination name (country, city or airport) in the mother tongue language – for example Vídeň in Czech instead of Vienna or Berlijn instead of Berlin in Hungarian.
From the affiliate side, everything is also simple. You can check it out in your Travelpayouts’ profile or on your website. While creating the form, choose the preferred language:
For example, Czech. You will get a form in this language that also supports filling out in Czech:
The same is valid for White Label: set up the required language during White Label creation and your visitors will not just see the localized design, but will also be able to type the search queries in their mother tongue.
Before the last update, it was just in English, which limited usage for some of our foreign partners.
