Cookie Consent on multilingual website

Having a multilingual website might be challenging, especially if some parts of the website keep updating. This also includes the Cookie Banner and Cookie Declaration, which needs to be updated as your website cookies change. But worry no more, Cookie-Script is a hassle-free automated cookie consent solution that is designed to take care of such challenges and supports 34 languages.

How does it work?

We did our best to make a Consent Management Platform, that will make any multilingual website compliant with the latest Privacy Regulations easily.

Let's say you have a website in German, but also show it in Italian and Spanish languages. Cookie Banner can be configured for that in few clicks. Just choose what languages your website supports and Cookie-Script will automatically detect the current language and apply translations to the banner elements. There are a few ways language can be detected, you can select the preferred language detection method in your banner settings.

No translations, but one language that is not English? No worries, we will apply our translations to all elements and cookie descriptions too!

Cookie-Script is translated to 34 languages, but it is also possible to add any custom language and adjust all texts and cookie descriptions. You can even make your Cookie Banner show up in some alien language after Elon Mask colonizes Mars.

And the best part: there are no limitations on how many languages you can use.

What text is pre-translated?

With a help of professional translation agencies, we have translated all texts that appear in the consent dialog.

Additionally, we have also translated all cookie descriptions in our Cookie Database, which on average can describe and categorize 70% of cookies used on the web. All descriptions in the Cookie Database are translated to all 34 languages.

Why this is important? Since we offer automatic monthly cookie scanning, there is a high chance that new cookies will be found during a scheduled cookie scanning. And that's not something you should be worried about, Cookie Scanner will automatically apply cookie category and description in all necessary languages. If needed, you can be informed by email.
