Currency Language Automatic Switcher Plugin for VirtueMart 2
Currency Language Automatic Switcher plugin for Virtuemart 2. Allows to set/switch/convert current currency and language on the fly according to the plugin's rules and a visitor's country. Now in order to change currencies you can create as many rules as you wish
Let's suppose you live in German, all visitors from German can see prices for your products in EUR and products information in German. It's good for visitors from France, Austria, Spain, Italy as well. But what about UK, Switzerland, Denmark and many other countries which still use their local currencies? I guess it would be good if these visitors can see prices in their currency and read information in their language. UK - £, Swiss - CHF, Denmark - DKK, USA - $. It's quite easy to implement the feature by using this plugin to change your site's currency and language on the fly. Just set up rules for countries, languages and enjoy it!
Note The plugin does not make a translation, Joomla does this, one just switches languages only. Thus this means that first you have to install language packages and prepare language translation files for your site.
The plugin does not work on a localhost, live sites only.
