Can I set my store to a different language?

3dcart can support any language that uses the Roman/Latin alphabet, such as English, French, Spanish, Portuguese. However, the cart cannot support non-roman/latin alphabets, such as Greek or Chinese.

The modern Latin alphabet consists of 52 letters, including both upper and lower case, plus 10 numerals, punctuation marks and a variety of other symbols such as &, % and @. Many languages add a variety of accents to the basic letters, and a few also use extra letters and ligatures.

If you are looking to change your website to a different language that uses the Roman/Latin alphabet, you can make modifications in the Admin panel to support this.
