What is the Language Settings Tab?

The Language Settings tab found under “Settings” allows you to edit some of the phrases that have been hard-coded into the app that our translation feature is unable to translate automatically. If you are building your app in a language other than English, feel free to use this feature to manually translate these phrases.

You can also use the App Settings as a branding opportunity! Feel free to change up any of the phrases found here to better represent your app’s brand and voice.

The Language Settings can be found under Settings in the side menu of the Control Panel

What are the different sections of the Language Settings?

Let’s go through the different sections of the Language Settings. If you ever want to change the phrases back to the original default ones, we have included them next to each line for you. Make sure you click “Save” for your changes to take effect!

Login

The Login section allows you to edit phrases and messages found when the users of your app login into their in-app profiles as well as Register a new one if they don’t already have an in-app profile.

Note: This section has been moved to the “User Login” tab under the “Design” tab. It can be accessed by either clicking this link in the app dashboard:

Or by clicking on Design -> User Login then clicking the “Settings” tab.

You will find the Language Settings under “Domain Settings”.

What is a Pro Tip you should know about the Language Settings?

Having worked with apps for years, we’ve learned a thing or two. So, to both help your app stand out and accomplish your primary goals, here’s a tip you should consider.

Pro Tip: You can remove a phrase entirely by typing a “ ” (space) into that field

Let’s say you don’t want to display the “Terms of Use” link in the side menu. All you need to do is enter in a “ ” (space) into that field and click “save” to make that link disappear.

Note: While you can hide them and adjust their wording, we strongly recommend that you leave the main links (such as Login, Notifications, and App Settings) displayed for ease of navigation around the app.
