SpotMe apps include built-in translations for interface elements such as buttons, welcome screens, prompts and menu labels.
How does this work?
SpotMe provides the basic translations for all the core features that are visible in the app. These translations will display automatically based on the selected language setting on the app user's device or browser.
For personalized text (for example visible in pages, session information, speaker biographies, sponsor details, etc.), the translated text will need to be provided and added to the workspace.
In the case of pages, separate pages will need to be created for each session and for each language, and then targeted based on a users profile data (preferred language), so that the participant would need to go into their user profile and select a preferred language, in order to see the pages translated in their preferred language.
- Simplified and traditional Chinese
These languages come out-of-the box with the SpotMe platform. You can add additional languages using Backstage yourself.
Enabling additional languages for users
By default, your workspace uses only English. This means that your users, regardless of their device settings, will see all the default menu items and prompts in English.
Follow the below steps to enable other language translations:
- Go to Backstage > Workspace > Settings > General.
- Under Languages click + and select the language you want to add.
- Click Save.
If the user's device is configured to use the added language, then the SpotMe app will automatically use that language.
Note: We recommend that you add languages to the workspace only if you plan to translate all the content of the app. Otherwise your app will appear only partially translated to the user.
