Genesys Co-browse Localization

This content may not be the latest Genesys Engage cloud content. To find the latest content, go to Genesys Engage cloud for Administrators.

To localize the end-user Co-browse UI, configure the localization option in the global configuration object in window._genesys.widgets.cobrowse.

The Co-browse agent-facing UI inherits localization from the Agent Desktop locale settings.

To set the end-user Co-browse UI language to German or French, add de or fr to the instrumentation:


window._genesys.widgets.cobrowse = {
    src: APIGEE_GCB_URL+'/cobrowse/js/gcb.min.js?apikey=APIGEE_GCB_KEY',
    url: APIGEE_GCB_URL+'/cobrowse/',
    apikey: 'APIGEE_GCB_KEY'
    lang: 'de'

If both lang and localization are provided, localization takes priority. This way it is possible to use built-in German or French localization and override some fields as necessary.


window._genesys.widgets.cobrowse = {
    lang: 'de',
    localization: {
        "modalYes": "Natürlich!"

If you are using Co-browse outside of Genesys Widgets, use window._genesys.cobrowse.localization instead of window._genesys.cobrowse.widgets.localization.


if(!window._genesys)window._genesys = {};
window._genesys.cobrowse= {
    src: '',
    url: '',
    localization: {
      // Here we're just changing default "Session ID" to "Session token"
      // You can use this mechanism to adjust default localization to your taste, not necessarily just for other languages
      'toolbarContent': 'Session token: {sessionId}'
You don't have to list all key-value pairs. Ones not listed are inherited from the defaults.
