After you download the Resource Bundle Template, you edit the file to provide translations.

To localize the texts and labels on a Payment Pages form:

  1. Open the downloaded Resource Bundle Template file, resource_bundle_template.txt, in a text editor, and type the translated labels and texts for the keys. See the table below for descriptions of the keys.
  2. Save the resource file with a clearly identifiable locale name, e.g. resource_buncle_fr.txt for the French translation file.

The following European languages must be saved and uploaded using the ISO-8859-1 encoding for the Payment Page form to be correctly displayed in those locales:

  • French
  • Canadian French
  • Italian

Upload the Translated Resource File and Assign a Locale

To upload the translated resource file:

  1. On the Add Translations to Hosted Payment Method page, click the Locale field and select the locale for the resource file that you are about to upload.
  2. Click Choose File.
  3. Select the file you translated and click Open.

Configure Payment Pages 2.0 in Multiple Languages

Once you have uploaded your translations, your payment form can be displayed in multiple languages. In your client code, add a logic to assign the client locale parameter based on the client locale setting. At runtime, the translation is dynamically loaded based on the logic, and your payment form is displayed in user's locale.
