Can my app be in any languages besides English?

Yes, you can translate your Live App into many different languages.

Key Highlights
  • From the Builder, choose a single language to display your app in.

  • Localize your Live App to dynamically display in your users’ languages using LocalizeJS.

  • The Builder can only be in English.

Display your Live App in a single language

You can control your Live App’s language from your app's settings. This translates the text that you do not have the ability to change without custom code, such as login buttons. Any text that you can edit through the Builder, such as menu buttons or view titles, must be changed manually.

Available languages for this include:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese (Brazilian)
  • French
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Czech
  • Swedish
  • Danish
  • Norwegian
  • Turkish (coming soon)

Localize your Live App to display in a number of different languages

Using LocalizeJS, you can have your Live App displayed in different languages depending on where the logged-in user is located. This works great if your desired language is not covered with our in-app selections and for global organizations that have users in many different countries with different languages.

Even though Localize requires some Javascript code setup, it’s easy enough that most non-programmers can do it too!
