Languages module settings

Enabling languages

The ‘Languages’ module allows you to select the languages you want to be available in Wizdom. Simply tick the box in the ‘Active’ column next to the language to make the language available in the Wizdom solution.

Please note that you’ll need wait at least five minutes before the language is enabled. This is due to cache.​​

After enabling the languages you wish, you can go to the ‘Translations’ module to provide custom translation values for the selected language.

The language, the user sees, is determined by a couple of factors:

1) The languages enabled for the site. A language has to be enabled at the top level site before content can be shown in this language.

2) The display language set in the user’s SharePoint profile. If possible (if the language is enabled at the top level site, the language is enabled in the Wizdom module ‘Languages’, and text is translated for the language in the ‘Translations’ module), the content will be shown in the language that has the first priority of the user, if not, the content will be shown in the language that has the user’s second priority etc.

3) If the user has not set a preferred language in his or her SharePoint profile, that the site will be able to display, then the user’s browser settings for language will determine the language the content will be shown in.

4) If the site is not able to display any of the display languages, set in the user’s SharePoint profile, or the language set in the browser, the content will be shown to the user in the standard language of the site.
