How to update language in the live-chat widget?

As outlined in the SDK setup guide, you can configure the locale for the live-chat widget either by passing it in the chatwootSettings or by calling the setLocale method. To specify the locale, use the shortcodes provided above. This will ensure that the widget is displayed in the desired language.

// Pass via window.chatwootSettings
window.chatwootSettings = {
  locale: 'pt_BR',
  // .. rest of the settings

// Using setLocale method

How to update your dashboard’s language?

Only administrators can update the dashboard language. Go to Settings → Account Settings. You will be able to see the Site Language setting available in the options. Select the language of your choice from the corresponding dropdown menu. Click on the Update Settings button on the top-right corner of your screen.

Changing the site language would change the default language for all agents/administrators in the system. Currently, Chatwoot does not support language selection at the agent level. Also, note that this language would be used as the fallback language for the live chat widget.
