Hi Bryan, 

Thank you for your question! 

In order to host a bilingual community, we have the Translation App33 available. This app will recognize content posted in a language different from the primary community language set and will provide a translation sign under the content for people to utilize. This app is available for all communities and can be accessed under Admin Settings > Apps.

Alternatively, we also have the Multilingual App39 which enables users with the ability to change the community language within their account settings to their language of choice. This app can also be accessed under Admin Settings > Apps, however is only available for Premium and Enterprise plans22.

In addition to the apps mentioned above, you could also create multiple groups within your community that is language-specific. An example of this can be seen here28 where the community is divided into groups ("channels") specific to language/ region.

Recently we added a new app to our app store called "Multilingual". This app is for Enterprise and Premium clients that allow their members to change the interface language for their own view. When the app is installed46, each user can change the language from account settings: 

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 App40 is enabled in your community as well, all the posts in a language different than Dutch, can be translated to the Dutch language by clicking on the globe icon at the end of the post. 

Now, if you are using SSO or you already have information about what the preferred language for your user is on your main website or your list, you can use Tribe Webhooks to automatically change the preferred language for each 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.
