  • English - US
  • English - UK
  • French
  • French Canadian
  • German
  • Hindi
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Mandarin - Simplified
  • Mandarin - Traditional
  • Polish
  • Portuguese - Brazilian

  • Spanish
  • Spanish- Latin America
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish

How do I set this up in my own profile?

Easily - you can set it up by clicking on Admin > Platform Configuration > Language, selecting the language and clicking on save.

How do I set it up for our instance as an Admin? 

Navigate to your name in the upper right hand corner > My Settings > Language > then choose your desired language from the drop down.

What doesn’t it do?

You will notice that certain fields are still not translated:

  • Any goals, conversations, peer feedback, or recognition templates or responses input in English
  • The Admin panel has not become fully translated 
  • Custom module naming is not supported in other languages besides English - US.
