Cookie-Script is a service that helps users to comply with GDPR requirements when it comes to cookies. Our tool is mostly used by website owners, web developers and web agencies.

A lot of our clients are either doing website development or building websites from scratch. For that they usually use some kind of Content Management Systems (CMS), for example Wordpress, Joomla, PrestaShop or OpenCart.

 

Why Magento?

Another popular e-commerce Content Management System is Magento. It is designed for advanced web shops, has a big community and is considered world's #1 eCommerce Platform. It has been released over 11 years ago and keeps growing and improving.

 

How to make e-shop with Magento?

Making eCommerce website with Magento is pretty straight forward: just download installation file, unpack it, go through installation process and you are ready to go. However having default looking e-shop is not too professional, so in most cases users need to design or buy pre-designed theme for the e-shop. Making unique design for Magento CMS could be quite pricy and buying pre-designed template will mean some other webshop has the same look.

 

Template generator - easiest way to start unique Magento e-store.

Another option to start webshop with a custom look and not spend thousands of dollars - use Magento Theme Generator. We are happy to announce that Cookie-Script has partnered with the only web based Magento Theme Generator: Theme Factory.

Theme-Factory is a platform for designing and making Magento Themes online, no need to download or install anything. You can always adjust a look of your webshop as you want, add custom backgrounds, adjust page elements, colors and sizes.

 

The cool part.

Since Cookie-Script users are often involved in website designing and creation, we are giving away a 50% discount for Theme Factory services. Yes, you heard it right: all Cookie-Script users can use Theme-Factory services with a 50% discount, just use the following code when buying Theme-Factory services: COOKIEDISCOUNT

Today we are happy to introduce translations - one of the most requested functionalities for Cookie-Script. From now on you can translate single Cookie-Script item to many languages and cookie popup will be shown in proper language automatically. 

You can find all translations for current item in the Translations tab

How website language is detected? 

There are few ways you can set up Cookie-Script to detect currently selected website language: 

1 Disabled: do not use translations

2 Auto detect language: try to detect language with HTML tag and if that fails, try to detect language with current webpage URL.

3 HTML tag only: This is most common option. Usually website has currently selected language written in HTML tag, which makes it usefull for any automated software to detect website language. HTML tag is a top parent element for all other elements on the page.

Example: 

<html lang="it">

4 Website URL only: Current page link is analyzed for any existing languages, Translation is applied if language code is found in the link. 

Example:

https://example.com/it/somepage.html

would trigger Italian translation since page URL contains /it/

How do I add new translations?

Adding new translations is pretty straight forward, just click + Add translation button, choose translation language and fill in all the translatable fields. You can add many translations to same item. If some languages are not needed, you can delete them with Delete translation button.

Note: If user agreed to cookie usage in one language, his choice will be remembered in other language.
Note: In case certain translation string is not available in translation, original (non translated) text will be used.

Custom languages

We have included all EU languages for selection and also added pre-defined translations for those languages. However if you need to translate Cookie-Script popup to some other language, just choose Other language... in language selector and enter custom language code.
