Changing Language Settings

|   Oct 18, 2012

Changing the default language for a Socialcast community is a snap for both users and admins. This will ensure that your international workforce is able to leverage the power of the social enterprise no matter their native tongue, in turn making it easier to get work done.

For Admins: The administrator can set the default language used in the Socialcast user interface (UI). To change the default community language go to Admin> Community Settings.

For Users: Each user can choose a default language for their personal account. To change your personal profile language simply go to your Settings.

These language settings affect only the UI elements on the page. Socialcast does not translate message text entered by the user. Users are free to enter messages using any language they prefer. Currently, Socialcast supports English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and German.


  • Nice improvement.
    Hopefully a translation functionality will follow soon. This will improve the level of engagement hugely!
