Selecting a different language for communications

Users can select the language of their choice once they join ClassTag or at any point in time in their 'Account Settings'. 

Selecting a different language when joining ClassTag

When users accept the invitation to join whether in the very first invite or at a later time when they want to follow any links or sign up for anything in your communications, they will be prompted to select a language or confirm the language that was selected for them before they joined. 

Selecting a different language in 'Account Settings'

Any user can change the language at any time in their 'Account Settings' located in the left side navigation. The changes to the language of the communications will be effective immediately once they click 'Save Changes'. 

Receiving communications in different languages

All users who have selected or assigned a language different from English will be receiving communications in the language of their choice. This language will be reflected in the web version, apps and all other means of communications including sms, email and printed flyers. 

If you are having a conversation with someone whose language is different from English, while your language is English you will be receiving the replies via ClassTag conversations in English while the other user is writing in their language of choice and vice versa. 

Below you will find examples of translated communications.
