How to Change the Language of a Course

 

ProProfs Training Maker allows you to change the interface language of a course or enable learners to choose their preferred language. The course will then be automatically translated into the selected language.

 

This feature promotes global accessibility of courses and removes language barriers to learning. With over 70 languages, including English and Spanish, you can make your training course available to learners in specific regions.

 

By changing the language, instructors can share their courses with learners in various locations.

 

NOTE: The language change settings will translate specific text and buttons to the selected language.

 

Alternatively, if your course is available to learners from different parts of the world, you can provide an option for them to choose their preferred language. This allows learners to navigate through the course seamlessly in their native language.

 

Below is a glimpse of a course in Spanish with the interface language changed to Spanish:

 How to Allow Learners to Change a Course Language

As instructors, you can enable the language selection option in your course settings to let learners select their preferred language from the options available and start their learning journey!

 How to Improve Course Translation in Different Languages

 

We support over 70 languages. The buttons and associated text (such as the “Start Course” button) are automatically translated to the language you define in the “Language Setting” of a course. We use a state-of-the-art translation service. However, we are glad to make improvements based on your suggestions.

 

If you request an alternate improved text, please post your suggestion. On our Contact page, choose "Suggestion" as the purpose. We will certainly incorporate your valuable suggestions and implement new features. However, please note that we cannot make language changes specific to your course.

 

You can send suggestions for the text that applies to all courses so that we can improve the Training Maker for all of our users from your country.

 

That is all about changing the language of a course and making suggestions for improvements to the translation.
