MetaShare Help - FAQ

    How do I change MetaShare's display language?

    All MetaShare's user interface (functions, help-texts, alerts, etc.) are managed by specific MetaShare language resource-files and currently these 2 languages are available:

    1. English
    2. Swedish

    We will be adding more languages once our clients need them.

    MetaShare user interface is displayed in the language that you have selected as your browser's preferred language. If your selected preferred language is not available in MetaShare, English will be used as default.

    MetaShare's document metadata and taxonomy, is however not automatically translated unless you give them different display names in each and one of the languages that you want your document management solution to have. Information of how to do this can be found in the Admin Manual, more specifically under these pages:

    1. The term store's language settings
    2. How to define a site column
