Staffbase supports multilingual companies and offers localization of the app interface and the admin interface.
The app distinguishes between the language for the app interface and the content language.
The interface includes buttons, automatically generated texts, system messages, and the menu for app settings. All of these texts cannot be changed by editors or administrators, since the texts belong to the unchangeable layout of the app interface.
Content can be created by editors or administrators themselves. To reach as many users as possible, you can create content in many different content languages. The menu is also part of the content, since you can create the text displayed in the menu in different languages.
The Staffbase platform offers automated machine translations for pages, posts, and comments. As automated machine translations still have some shortcomings, we recommend that the creator of the content to manually add high-quality translations, when required.
When on-demand translations are activated and enabled for your employee platform, the app user can translate content on-demand.
When using multiple languages: What will my users see?
The users define the language of the app content in Settings > Language settings under their user profile. The Language settings option is only available if more than one language is configured for your app.
If you cannot provide all content in all languages in a multilingual environment, content is displayed in a default language of your choice. This means that you can, for example, offer English or another, commonly spoken language as a replacement.
The app interface on the other hand, is related to the language setting of the user's device. If the device is set to a language that is not available as app interface language, a suitable language is used as a replacement.
