Localizing Individual Text Blocks

in beta

growth plans

In the Builder Visual Editor, you can configure individual Text blocks to deliver content specific to language and region preferences. For example, if you wanted to differentiate copy for a visitor in Germany or a a visitor in Mexico, you could adjust a few settings on the block and add copy in each language to the block's localization settings.

This document shows you how to add localization to an individual Text block as well as remove the localized binding on a block.

Prerequisites

To successfully use localization in Builder, make sure you've already done the following:

Step 1: Configuring a single Text block for localization

  1. Double click the block to open the Edit dialogue.
  2. At the upper right, click the binding icon with the four dots.
  3. Choose Localize text.
  4. Enter copy per locale. The Default locale content shows when none of the other locales are present in the user's settings.

With inline localization, you can configure localized content at the block level as in the following video.

👉 Tip: If you don't have any locales, click the link in Add locales here. For additional locales, add them individually with the same process or add multiple locales in a single dialogue as outlined in Adding locales in Account settings.

Step 2: Integrate with your codebase

The last part of setting up localization is to integrate. For instructions, continue to Integrating Builder Localization with your code.

Removing a block-level binding

To remove a binding from a selected block, take the following steps:

  1. Open the Data tab.
  2. In the Element data bindings section, click the "x" that appears on hover beside the binding.
