Translations and Languages OverviewBack to top
Operating in the travel and tourism industry, chances are your business receives bookings from across the globe. It is important, then, to offer your items/products and services in multiple languages.
At the same time, you need the default system language, Customer and Staff-facing, to be in the primary language in which you do business.
Checkfront allows you to do just that through features including our default Language setting, Checkfront Translations, and Customer Languages (available on select plans).
Determines the default language for your account.
