Adjust Language

You can adjust the language of the Like Button by loading a localized version of the Facebook JavaScript SDK. When you load the SDK adjust the value js.src to use your locale: Just replaced en_US by your locale, e.g. fr_FR for French (France):

js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/fr_FR/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.7"; 

Supported locales are referenced in the Facebook Locales XML file. You may need to adjust the width of a Social Plugin to accommodate different languages. You may find more information on our Localization & Translation page.
