With the Language Macros 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 his or her user settings.
  • Quickly switch between existing languages by using the language drop-down.
  • The title of a Confluence page can be set according to the user's language settings using the Pagetitle macro.
  • Enable or disable the Language Macros individually in the Administrator Interface.
  • If no macro exists for the user's preferred language, the app checks if there is a macro for Confluence's default language that can be displayed.

Displaying content in different languages

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.
