This feature enables staff to set the interface language for their paper to French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese or Japanese. This means that most of the elements in their paper will be in another language.
Changing your language pack
To change the language pack of your paper:
- Go to Control Panel > Customization > Properties
- Find section 6. Select Language Pack
- Select your language from the drop down menu
- If you DON’T want students to be able to over-ride this setting (i.e., change it back to English) tick the “Enforce Language Pack” box
- Click Submit
Help! I have changed my language and don’t speak French/ German/ Portuguese/ Spanish/Chinese/Japanese!
