Dialogflow Multilingual Agent
When creating an agent in Dialogflow, the language you choose is set as the default language. With the Multilingual Agent feature your agent can now support additional languages.
How Dialogflow Multilingual Agent works in respond.io
The Language Field in the contact’s details on the respond.io platform is used in the request sent to Dialogflow. When a request is sent to Dialogflow, the contact's language will be included and Dialogflow will resolve and respond according to the language value.
Example: If the Contact's Language Field is English, the platform will request an en response and if the Language Field is Spanish the platform will request the es response.
How to Create a Multilingual Agent
To create a Multilingual Agent, follow the steps below.
Step 1: In the left sidebar menu, click the + button to add another language.
Step 2: In the Languages tab click Select Additional Language and select an additional language from the dropdown menu.
Step 3: To add language localization for a specific region, hover over the language and click + Add locale.
Step 4: Click SAVE
The interaction between Dialogflow Agent and Contact is managed by intents. In summary, intents are used to describe the expected behavior for one conversation turn based on the prescribed incoming behavior.
