Yes, we have built our software to work with your pre-existing live chat and our RESTFul API can be implemented to allow customers and agents to choose their individual native languages to converse in.
What is the difference between Lingmo Live Chat API and the Lingmo Live Chat Plugin?
We offer two options for implementation. An API Key and Plugin.
The API key provides the translation for pre-existing Live Chat system. If you have a live chat already on your website but it doesn’t allow customers to write in their own native language you would simply integrate our RESTFul API.
The Plugin is an entire Live Chat software solution developed for clients with no live chat system in place on their website. This simply requires you to active the plugin on your website and start using the chat system. This gives you access to the customer pop up window, the client agent chat window and backend dashboard to show reporting and analytics.

How does the translation function work?
When the customer activates a live chat conversation, they will be prompted to select their language from the dropdown box. Once one of the 80 languages are selected, customers can start typing in their native language. Once they press send, the message is sent to the customer representative and translated into their chosen language for them to read. The agent replies in their own native language and the message is translated back into the customer’s language for them to read. This all happens in Realtime and is contextually translated with an 98% accuracy.
