Can I offer a multilingual experience to my attendees?

A multilingual experience can be offered within the Event Space using the Primary and Secondary language settings. From the Event Details area of the Experience Manager, a checkbox labelled as 'Add another language' will be available should you need to select a second language option for your event.

While the Primary language option will determine the default language that the Event Space is displayed in when attendees access it for the first time, the Secondary language will be made available as an alternative language option that they can select within the Preferences area of the Attendee Dashboard. 

It is important to note that the language settings you are selecting for both your Primary and Secondary options will be reflected only for text that has been built directly into the Event Space - this means that any customizable text fields will need to be translated in advance of adding them to the Experience Manager. 

To offer a true multilingual experience, we recommend incorporating both languages when adding any titles, names, descriptions, pages, survey questions etc. The language preferences that attendees set will be reflected only in the non-customizable areas of the Event Space, such as the 'Menu' icon, 'Refresh App' option in the menu, etc. The content that has been added to the Experience Manager will only be made available in the language that you have included, and will therefore need to incorporate both language options for the attendee to reference. We recommend incorporating a slash (/) to help in separating both of the language options, for example, 'Title / Titre'.
