Most browsers provide built-in language settings that allow anyone using the browser to translate webpages into the language of their choice. Otus is proud to support the translation of our site using these same language settings.
Since Otus will automatically be presented in the primary language of the user's device and browser settings, we are able to better support multilingual families using Otus through their student's school or district.
What Languages Are Supported?
The following languages have been translated by translators for each language to ensure that all content is presented clearly:
Additionally, the following languages are made available through machine translation, which uses artificial intelligence to automatically translate text from one language to another without human involvement:
We will continue to support more languages as future versions of this feature are made available.
What Content Is Translated?
Translation only occurs for the text that is part of the Otus application. This means that any user-created content, such as assessment content, custom standards, class board posts, or blog posts, show exactly as they were typed into Otus. If that content should be available in another language, it will need to be typed into Otus in the desired language(s).
How do I Check My Browser's Language Settings?
➡️ For PC Users using Chrome:
Step 1: In your Chrome browser, select the three dots in the top right corner of the browser by your account image.
Step 2: Choose Settings.
Step 3: Select Languages.
Step 4: Next to the language you'd like to use, click the ellipsis (the three dots). If the language isn't listed, add it by clicking Add languages.
Step 5: Click Display Google Chrome in this language. This option is only available on Windows computers.
Step 6: Restart Chrome to apply the changes.
➡️ For Mac Users using all browsers:
Step 1: On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences
Step 2: Select Language & Region.
Step 3: Click General (It may already be selected).
Step 4: Do any of the following:
Option 1: Add a language: Click the Add button, select one or more languages in the list, and then click Add.
The list is divided by a separator line. Languages above the line are system languages that are fully supported by macOS and are shown in menus, messages, websites, and more. Languages below the line aren’t fully supported by macOS, but they may be supported by apps that you use, shown in their menus and messages, and on some websites.
If you can’t use the input source that’s selected in the Input menu to type a selected language, a list of available sources is shown. If you don’t add an input source now, you can add it later in the Input Sources pane of Keyboard preferences.
Option 2: Change the primary language: Select a different language in the languages list.
If macOS or an app supports the primary language, menus and messages are shown in that language. If it doesn’t, it uses the next unselected language in the list, and so on. The language may also be used on websites that support the language.
The order of the languages in the list determines how text displays when you type characters in a script that belongs to more than one language. See If non-Latin fonts don’t appear correctly on Mac for more information.
