Change the language of your web portal

You're getting started with your UserVoice account, and you need to get the language set for your UserVoice site. We'll walk you through how this works.

To change your web portal's language:
  • Click the icon in the bottom left corner [If you’re on an old version of UV, your settings will be accessed from the admin header.]
  • You'll be on the "General" settings tab
  • Scroll and you'll see "Language and Time Zone" 
  • Click "Edit" 
  • You'll see the option to change the default language.
Now, when a user lands on your web portal the standard UI text will show in the default language you set. Custom content that is written by admins or users (forum names, idea titles, category names, etc.) will show in whatever language it was written in.
