Icecat Live API Supports Multilingual Calls for Digital Assets

Avatar for Anton Bondarenko
release notes

The Icecat Live API supports now multilingual calls to retrieve digital assets related to multiple locales. This client requirement followed from the transfer of former Autheos clients to our (free) Icecat Live service. Icecat Live enables merchants to insert real-time product content from hundreds of major brands or manufacturers in any app. Just with a few lines of JavaScript in an HTML template. This can be any digital asset. In the case of former Autheos users, we focused on videos.

Below, an explanation of how to implement multilingual calls with Icecat Live.

LIVE API multilingual calls format

In case a user wants to retrieve a video for a product in one preferred language, but this is not available in this language, a user might still retrieve it with a backup language. To implement this logic a user just needs to pass the list of language codes as an array. For example, [‘en’, ‘fr’] where UK English (en) is the preferred language and France French (fr) is the backup language.

It is possible to add up to 5 languages into the array. Please, find below the full example of how Icecat Live API supports multilingual calls:

<div id="Container"></div>
    window.addEventListener('liveload', function() {
        IcecatLive.getDatasheet('#Container', {
            Brand: 'Philips',
            PartCode: 'DS8900/10',
            UserName: 'openicecat-live'
        }, ['en', 'fr'])              
<script src="" async></script>
