What languages are supported?

Your forum fully supports the usage of any language. Therefore, your users can input their text in any language when using the forum.

If you are using one of the new themes, your forum is automatically shown in Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Vietnamese if the user's browser language is set to those languages, otherwise the forum appears in English.

If you'd like to add support for a different language, please contact us. We'll send you a file with all of the text used in the forum translated into the language using Google Translate. You can then review the translations to ensure that they are accurate before we enable them on your forum.

If any of our translations are incorrect or inaccurate, please let us know and we'll be glad to fix it.

Content that you or users post is not automatically translated. (For example: posts, category titles, etc. are not translated.) For automatically translating content that users have posted, the most effecient way would be to recommend users to install the Google Translate browser extension.

Users can also manually change the language of the forum by using the language drop down that appears at the bottom of the forum in any of the new themes. The forum will remember what language they chose.
