Changing the language

New in ActivityInfo version 2.10

It is possible to change the language of the interface and to set your preferred language in your profile settings. Besides English, we provide translations in Arabic, Persian, Vietnamese, Dutch, French and Spanish.

Here, we describe how you can switch the current language of the application. Note that ActivityInfo will not remember your selection after you log out of the application. For this, you need to set your preferred language in your profile settings. The preferred language also affects the language of the email notifications.

Note that switching the language requires an internet connection. If you try to switch the language in offline mode without an internet connection then you will receive an error. If you need to be able to switch languages in a situation where no internet connection is available, you should select all required languages when in offline mode before you lose internet connectivity.
