Button Languages

PayPal currently offers pages in three different languages. They are English, German, and French. Below I have provided information and examples on each of the languages.

To create these buttons directly through your PayPal account simply choose the country as Germany for German, France for French, or an English speaking country for English when you are going through the button creation process. This should then alter the button to show the appropriate language of button, and direct them toward the correct site.

In the examples displayed below, if you compare them, the difference is really just the first line of the form tag, the lc variable line of code, and the image URL.

The line below reflects the starting line for any type of button in French. This is calling the French site instead of the English site. The German URL would be https://www.paypal.de/cgi-bin/webscr instead of https://www.paypal.com.fr/cgi-bin/webscr (French), https://www.paypal.com/it/cgi-bin/webscr (Italian) or https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr (English).

Example Line:

English:
<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
German:
<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.de/cgi-bin/webscr">
French:
<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com.fr/cgi-bin/webscr">
Italian:
<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.it/cgi-bin/webscr">

The line below reflects a view cart button graphic in French. You will notice that for the English buttons the url will reflect a en_US instead of a fr_FR. For German you would replace it with the de_DE. The rest of the URL should remain the same, only that part of the URL should change.

Example Line:

English:
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/view_cart_02.gif">
German:
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/de_DE/i/btn/view_cart_02.gif">
French:
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/fr_FR/i/btn/view_cart_02.gif">
Italian:
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/it_IT/i/btn/view_cart_02.gif">

The LC variable will also determine what language your page is displayed in.
You would need to add this line of code between the form tags of your button.

Example Line:

English:
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="US">
French:
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="FR">
German:
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="DE">
Italian:
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="IT">
