Turkish locale support for Paddle Checkout and subscription emails

Merhaba! Paddle now supports the Turkish locale for Paddle Checkout and subscription emails.

What's new?

We added Turkish locale support to the Paddle platform, which means that Paddle Checkout and subscription emails from Paddle Billing can be localized in Turkish.

As part of this change, we added tr as an allowed value for the locale parameter. You can pass this to Paddle.Checkout.open() or Paddle.Setup() to set the language for opened checkouts to Turkish.

Language for the checkout.

How it works

Over 80 million people speak Turkish across the world, including Turkey, Northern Cyprus, and countries in the Caucasus region. It's a key language for selling into Central Eurasia.

The Paddle platform now supports the Turkish locale. This means that Paddle Checkout can be localized in Turkish.

Paddle Checkout automatically detects the best language based on a customer's browser default and location. Customers making a purchase using overlay checkout can switch language using the drop-down at the bottom of the overlay. You can also pass a locale when setting up Paddle.js or opening a checkout to set a locale yourself.

Where a customer completes checkout in Turkish, Paddle sends purchase and subscription-related emails in Turkish. The locale field against the customer entity created by Paddle Checkout is set to tr, meaning emails from Paddle are sent in Turkish.

Next steps

This change is available now.

You can pass tr as a value for locale when setting up or opening a checkout to preview Paddle Checkout in Turkish, or use the drop-down at the bottom of overlay checkout to change language.

You can set tr as a value for locale when creating or updating customers using the Paddle API. Emails from Paddle to customers whose locale is tr are sent in Turkish.
