Language settings can be changed both in the web browser view of Edsby as well as the Edsby mobile apps. To override the default language used by Edsby, navigate to Settings by clicking either the drop-down menu beside the name of the account holder in the web browser and selecting Settings or clicking Settings directly from the mobile Home Screen.
In the menu that opens, select Other Settings. This will provide you with the option to change your preferred language.
You can change your preferred language in Edsby by clicking the drop-down menu and selecting one of the languages listed.
Click Save and exit the Settings menu. The language used by Edsby will now be changed. If parts of the screen are still presented in the former language, try logging out and logging back in.
Follow these same steps when changing Language Settings through the mobile app.
When a new language has been selected, Edsby will change the following to the new selected language:
- Search boxes
- Main headings
- Drop-down menu options
However, any posts, events or groups made by others in Edsby will remain in the language they were created in. To override this and translate these posts, events or groups into a language other than what they were created in, a browser extension is required. Edsby supports both Microsoft Translator and Google Translate browser extensions to enable a student or parent to translate any content within Edsby.
