How to Change the Language in Your Wiki

Axel Heinemann

Do you want to have the system texts in your wiki displayed in Spanish, French or Kiswahili? Switch your language settings in your wiki!  You can change your language settings to almost any language in the world.

Here are the steps to follow: Log into your wiki, go to the top right corner of the screen and hover over your picture and user name. A drop down menu will appear.  Select “Preferences”. You are now directed to your user profile. Scroll down to the section “Internationalisation”. Choose your desired language under the option “Language”, and then save your change by clicking on the save button on the bottom of the page. All system texts will now appear in your chosen language.
Please note that this option only changes the language of the system texts and messages. Articles and discussions will continue to appear in the language they have been written.
