Most English words required for VPCART have been placed in two files. By translating these files, you should be able to run your shop in many other languages. This is useful for both English and non-English shopping.
The language facility changes the captions used in the shopping cart but does not dynamically translate the information stored in the database. A customer of your shop can switch language captions automatically.
The language files are available in a number of major languages.
