Changing Your Community Language Preferences

By the default, buttons and menu options in the community are displayed in English. If you would like to use the community in a language other than English, you need to follow the instructions below. Please note that you can only change your preferences to a language that is currently available. The language that you want to use might not be available at this time. Please don't change your language preferences to a language that you don't speak, just to try it out, as you might have trouble navigating the options to switch it back to the default, English.

  1. Click on your avatar image on the top right. This will bring up a dropdown menu.
