Installing a Language Pack

Confluence ships with a number of bundled language packs. These languages appear as options on the 'Language Configuration' screen in the Administration Console when choosing a default language and as 'Language' options for users in their user settings.

Confluence is available in these languages right out of the box:

  • Čeština (Česká republika | Czech Republic)
  • Dansk (Danmark | Denmark)
  • Deutsch (Deutschland | Germany)
  • English (UK)
  • English (US)
  • Español (España | Spain)
  • Français (France)
  • Italiano (Italia | Italy)
  • Magyar (Magyarország | Hungary)
  • Nederlands (Nederland | The Netherlands)
  • Norsk (Norge | Norway)
  • Polski (Polska | Poland)
  • Português (Brasil | Brazil)
  • Suomi (Suomi | Finland)
  • Svenska (Sverige | Sweden)
  • Русский (Россия | Russia)
  • 中文 (中国 | China)
  • 日本語 (日本 | Japan)
  • 한국어 (대한민국 | Republic of Korea)

The following languages are still bundled, but we no longer translate new features for these languages. 

  • Eesti (Eesti | Estonia)
  • Íslenska (Ísland | Iceland)
  • Slovenčina (Slovenská republika | Slovak Republic)
  • Română (România | Romania)

You can make additional languages available by installing language pack apps. You'll need to be a Confluence administrator to install a language pack.

We no longer provide community translations for Confluence. You can find a small number of third-party language packs on the Atlassian Marketplace

The key names are displayed with a 'lightning bolt' graphic. Here's an example from a space sidebar:
