❗️ Great News❗️

Otus is currently beta testing a feature that automatically changes the language of our app based on the browser's language settings. This is a work in progress and will get better in future updates.

This will be great for international or multilingual families, as it will automatically present the Otus site in the primary language of the user's device settings.

Currently, the fully supported languages are as follows (more will be added in the future):

English

Mandarin

Spanish

French

Italian

Portuguese

Tagalog

Russian

Polish

These additional languages will be available for automatic translation using machine learning:

Afrikaans

Bengali

Bulgarian

Croatian

Czech

Danish

German

Greek

Gujarati

Haitian Creole

Hungarian

Japanese

Kannada (Kanarese)

Korean

Khmer

Latvian

Lithuanian

Lao (aka Laotian)

Malayalam

Marathi

Mongolian

Punjabi

Romanian

Serbian

Somali

Swahili

Swedish

Thai

Ukrainian

Vietnamese

We will continue to support more languages in future versions of this feature.

❗️Note: Translation only occurs for Otus text, not user-generated content. User entries such as assessment content, custom standards, and blog posts will show up exactly how the user typed them into Otus.


❓ 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: At the bottom, click Advanced.

  • Step 4: Under "Languages," click Language.

  • Step 5: Next to the language you'd like to use, click More (The three dots). If the language isn't listed, add it by clicking Add languages.

  • Step 6: Click Display Google Chrome in this language. This option is only available on Windows computers.

  • Step 7: 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, 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 may be supported by apps that you use, and 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.
