    2. On the Company subtab, check the Multi-Language box.

    3. Click Save.

  2. Verify that all languages available on your site are defined in your Company General Preferences:

    2. On the Languages subtab, select and add each language that you want to make available in your NetSuite account and on your website.

    3. Click Save.

    Only languages that have been enabled in your Company General Preferences are available. See the help topic Configuring Multiple Languages for more information.

      When translation fields are populated in the item record, the corresponding translated fields display in the web store.
