How do automatic translations work?



The feature to translate messages and post will happen automatically.
When a teacher creates a class they choose the language of the class.
When a member creates their account they select their language of choice.
If these two are different, a button offering for the message to be translated will automatically appear on the bottom of each post, as well as in the chat on Ios (this feature should appear shortly on Android and on the WebApp.)



You can change your main language of choice in the settings of the class (click the three dots on the top right)

Members can edit their settings and change their language of choice also.

Check out our article on How to edit your settings.
