Customize phrases used in the website widget

You can customize phrases used in the Bitrix24 Website Widget.

This option is available to Standard and Professional plans subscribers only.

Use JavaScript code to do that:

window.addEventListener('onBitrixLiveChat', function(event)
	var widget = event.detail.widget;

		type: BX.LiveChatWidget.SubscriptionType.configLoaded,
		callback: function() 
			widget.addLocalize({VARIABLE: 'New Text'});				

For example, you can customize these variable phrases:

BX_LIVECHAT_ERROR_TITLE – "Unfortunately we could not load live chat :("
BX_LIVECHAT_ERROR_DESC – "Please use some other communication tool or try again later."
BX_LIVECHAT_VOTE_BUTTON – "Rate our service"
The full list of variable phrases can be invoked by entering the following command to the browser's Developers Tools console:

You can add new phrases to the code as a string or as an array:

window.addEventListener('onBitrixLiveChat', function(event)
	var widget = event.detail.widget;

	widget.subscribe({type: BX.LiveChatWidget.SubscriptionType.configLoaded,
		callback: function(){widget.addLocalize({BX_LIVECHAT_LOADING: 'Wait, Live Chat is loading'});
			widget.addLocalize({BX_LIVECHAT_ERROR_TITLE: 'Oops, something went wrong'});				
			widget.addLocalize({BX_LIVECHAT_VOTE_BUTTON: 'Give us a score!',
				BX_LIVECHAT_OFFLINE: 'Sorry, our agents are sleeping',
				BX_LIVECHAT_ONLINE_LINE_1: 'Our team',
				BX_LIVECHAT_ONLINE_LINE_2: 'is ready to help you',					
				BX_LIVECHAT_ERROR_DESC: 'Chat is down for repairs',
