For a live presentation on Bókun's booking engine and how to use it to maximise your direct online sales, please register for our next webinar HERE.
To accept bookings on your website, you must embed an online booking engine widget. You can have your online booking engines in 34 languages.
Step 1 - Add languages to your account
The first thing to do is select which languages you'd like to use for your booking engines in your account.
Click the gear icon in the top right corner > Click Settings
Click Add for each language you'd like to add to your account.
When you've clicked Add the language will have the status Active.
Note: Bókun does not automatically translate your content to another language, you will have to translate content manually yourself.
You can click the active language to add additional content translations. Learn more about how to translate content in Bókun.
Step 2 - Choose the language for your booking channel
A booking channel is an online sales channel that tracks where your online bookings are coming from. Usually, it will be your company's website. If you have your website in multiple languages, you need to create a separate booking channel for each language. Learn more about Booking Channels.
Click Sales Tools in the top menu > Click Booking Channels
Click the name of the booking channel where you'd like to change the language, e.g. your website.
Click Default language in the left-hand side menu, choose the language you'd like for your online booking engines from the drop-down and click Continue.
Step 3 - Preview your online booking engine
To accept bookings on your website, you must embed a booking engine widget. To add a booking engine to your website, you generate an embed code which you then paste on to your website. Learn more about how to embed an online booking engine.
Click Sales Tools in the top menu > Click Widgets
Choose the booking channel from the drop-down in the top right corner > Click Button in the left-hand side menu > Click Create widget
Click the booking button.
Choose the language you'd like to preview from the drop-down in the top-right corner. This is how your online booking engine will look on your website.
