With Translations for Confluence, you can add and edit content in different languages on the same Confluence page.
- Choose any combination of over 40 language macros.
- The individual user sees content only in the language set in their user settings.
- Quickly switch between existing languages by using the language drop-down.
Writing content in different languages
Use a specific language macro to write content in the languages supported by Confluence.
How your text looks in the editor:
How your resulting page looks like (user's language set to English):
Switching between languages
To check if the macro works according to plan, use the drop-down in the upper-right corner and choose another language you used on that page.
If you want to change the language of the entire Confluence interface including the main text, you'll have to change the language in your user settings.
This is done as follows:
- Click on your profile icon in the top right corner. Choose "Settings".
- You will see your current language setting.
- Click on "Account Preferences".
- Click on the "Language" menu and choose a different language. Note that your language setting will also affect Jira and JSM. Your setting will be saved automatically.
- Leave the "Account Preferences".
- Access any Confluence page with language macros.
If this page has content in the language matching your user language, it will now be displayed to you (you may have to refresh the page first).
