Understand how the Apple Pay and Google Pay buttons display and translate at checkout
The Apple Pay button simply displays the name of the service—the Apple logo followed by the word "Pay". It doesn't display a call to action like "Pay now". Therefore, there's no need for it to translate for your customers to understand it in their preferred language.
As for the Google Pay button, it displays the call to action "Pay now". Therefore, there is a need for it to translate for your customers to understand it in their preferred language. For customers using Windows, it does this by translating according to the default language of their browser. As for customers using Mac or Linux, it translates according to the default language of their system. Changing the language of your eCom store language does not translate the Google Pay button.
