Our Multilingual addon allows users to translate the interface of the community by selecting their preferred language. You must manually enable which languages will be available to your users, and each will be displayed in the footer (by default) for them to choose.
📝 NOTE: The Multilingual addon only translates your community's interface elements, not content generated by your users. This addon is perfect for bilingual communities where the main content will be in English (or another main language) but users may want to see the menu items in their local language.

📝 NOTE: These language options only appear to logged in users, and will not be available to guests. Once users set their multilingual preference, it will be retained each time they log in until they change it themselves.
What is translated?
As stated earlier, this addon does not translate user generated content, only Vanilla navigation elements.
