WPML & FedEx shipping – WooCommerce store translation

If you’re running an online store with WooCommerce and aiming to cater to customers from different linguistic backgrounds, you’re in the right place. Creating a seamless multilingual experience not only enhances customer satisfaction but also opens doors to new markets and increased sales opportunities.

The two essential aspects of managing a multilingual WooCommerce store are:

  • WPML
  • WooCommerce shipping plugin that supports a global shipping carrier like FedEx

WPML is a powerful plugin that allows you to easily translate and display your website content in multiple languages. It provides a user-friendly interface for managing translations, making it effortless to maintain consistency across your store’s various language versions.

Additionally, integrating FedEx shipping rates on the checkout page ensures accurate shipping calculations for customers worldwide. By leveraging the power of FedEx’s shipping rates API, you can provide real-time shipping cost estimates based on the customer’s location, weight, and dimensions of the products in their cart.

Combining the capabilities of WPML and FedEx shipping rates on the checkout page creates a seamless experience for your multilingual customers. They can browse your store in their preferred language and receive accurate shipping cost estimates based on their location, eliminating any language or shipping-related barriers.
