More about Language
Setting your language preference in your user profile is described in the section above. This section gives more information about that setting and other settings that affect the language Confluence will use.
The language used for your session will depend on the settings below, in the following order of priority from highest to lowest:
- The language preference defined in your user profile. Note that you need to be logged in for this setting to take effect.
The language that you choose by clicking an option at the bottom of the Confluence login screen. Confluence stores this value in a cookie. When the cookie expires, the setting will expire too.
The language set in your browser. The browser sends a header with a prioritised list of languages. Confluence will use the first supported language in that list. Your Confluence administrator can disable this option by setting a system property.
- The default language for your site, as defined by your Confluence site administrator.
You can set some options that determine the way the Confluence editor works. Note that these settings affect only you. Other people using Confluence can enable or disable the settings on their user profiles independently.
To change your editor preferences:
- Choose your profile picture at top right of the screen, then choose Settings
- Click Editor under 'Your Settings' in the left-hand panel
