@jesusginard, When I checkout on your site I get sent to PayPal and the page displays it in English. I also get a little language change option on the top right hand corner. So its definitely working for your visitors of the site. Make sure you clear your cookies and cache and then check it.April 5, 2012 at 1:33 am #20130
OK, it’s workingDecember 20, 2012 at 6:08 am #20131ZainParticipant
Thanks for this thread – it’s really helpful and I’ve used it a couple of times this year.
I’m just wondering… Would it be possible to have the language as a text field on the PayPal settings page? (page=wp_eStore_settings&settings_action=gateway). I suggest a text field, as it means that the user can input their own country(US, UK) and language (sv_SE), as well as giving the system scope to grow in future (without having to update the code!).
This way, people who want to display the PayPal language in another language will be able to do so without having to update the files each time.
I’m just mentioning this as WordPress has recently updated and my client asked if I could update all the plugins again. Updating the eStore plugin meant redoing the work that has already been done.
For ultimate flexibility, it would also be nice to see such an option on a “per product” basis. This would mean that, depending on the button clicked, users could be taken to different language pages for different products. For example, my client has a product in Swedish language version as well as an English one. At present, the cart only displays in one language – a per product language feature would be great for multilingual sites.
Thanks again for your consideration. There’s no rush on this (as I’ve applied the tweaks now), but it would be a nice addition for the future.
As usual, keep up the great work!

The problem is that this shouldnt need to be done at all. Just not sure if its the plugins use of the api or Paypals api itself.
My website is in English, but it is located in Germany. Normaly it should only matter where the custmer is from to determine what language is displayed. It always displays in German without mmodifying. So for some reason it is basing it on the sites location and not the actual customers profile settings or ip address.
That is the core of the problem unless I am misunderstanding something.December 21, 2012 at 11:12 pm #20133
Yeah, in general you shouldn’t need to specify the language. PayPal is good at figuring out what language to use to display the PayPal page. Only PayPal knows the exact algorithm of how they determine which language to use so its best to ask them that question. eStore will let you override the language to a specific one if you want/need to.
