Can all users pick what language they'd like to see in their view? So if there's an English post but you don't speak the language you can also translate that to your own language.

Where am I?

In Tribe you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Hi @Mike van der Valk44. Recently we added Multilingual App for our Enterprise and Premium clients that allows their members to change the interface language for their own view. Each user can change the language from here: 

Account Settings> Account> Display Language> Update
Account Settings> Account> Display Language> Update

Now, based on the preferred language that this user has picked (e.g. Dutch Language), if the Translation App77 is enabled on your community, all the posts in a language different than Dutch, can be translated to the Dutch language. Therefore, the translation app converts all the post to the language defined as a preferred language for this user. 

Now, if you are using SSO and you already have information about what the preferred language for your user is on your main website, you can use Tribe Webhooks to automatically change the interface language for that user inside the community accordingly. You can add a webhook for user.signup and then use our user update API (PUT /api/v1/users/{userId}) and set locale in the data.
