ONLYOFFICE guide to the languages and translation: FAQ and current achievements

The year is drawing to a close, and we begin to sum up the first results. Today we are going to tell you what we have achieved this year in translating ONLYOFFICE, and answer the most frequent questions about languages and translation. Let’s begin!

How many languages is ONLYOFFICE translated into?

Currently, ONLYOFFICE interface is translated into 23 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Latvian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Turkish, Greek, Polish, Czech, simplified Chinese, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Finnish, Portuguese, Azeri, Korean, Japanese, Slovenian, Dutch and Slovak.

What latest updates have been released?

This autumn we released ONLYOFFICE 9.5 with major updates in portal languages. Dutch was added as a new language. Turkish, Italian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Polish and Ukrainian were considerably updated.

Where can I find information about available languages?

You will find the needed information in our Help Center. This page shows what languages you can switch your portal to, as well as what languages will be available in the future.

The Completion Rate percent indicates the translation performance into one of the available languages.

How can I change the current portal language?

This option is available both for administrators and users. However, there is a difference: administrators set the language in general for all users, while users set the language individually for the certain account.

General language selection for administrators

  1. Click the  icon in the right upper corner to open the Customization page in the Settings section.
  2. Open the Language drop-down menu and select the appropriate language from the list.
  3. Click the Save button.

Individual language selection for users

If you would like to change the language within your account only, go to the Profile section by clicking the link with your name at the very top. Open the Language drop-down menu and select any available language you want.

How do you translate ONLYOFFICE to other languages?

ONLYOFFICE is multilingual thanks to volunteer translators who help other people use our solutions in their mother tongues. So, on the International Translation Day we posted an article about Simone Rizzo who helped us translate ONLYOFFICE into Italian.

As for the translation process itself, there is no need to install any additional software – our translators work within ONLYOFFICE Online Translation System. It allows them to see created translations in all languages, and compare various sections or elements at any moment, if necessary.

Can I participate in the translation of ONLYOFFICE?

Surely. We always encourage our user community to contribute to the translation of ONLYOFFICE. You just need to follow several easy steps. Besides, all the translators can use ONLYOFFICE up to 1 year free of charge.
