Translation. Ability to change what language the app uses

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

Not necessarily a problem, just not a fan of the app’s default language using American English.

Describe the solution you’d like

The option to select what language, or at least what type of English is used in the app.

Additional context

I found it kind of strange the app uses American English considering the developers are European if I’m not mistaken? But either way, I basically just do not want to see the favourite tab in the home menu spelled as ‘favorite’ that’s really all this feature request is :laughing:

I also think that as a whole, Anytype would greatly benefit from having the option to choose a preferred language for the app to displayed in, especially seeing that for many people in this community, English is not a first language.


Would also be interesting how translations are planned and if we already could help with that?


@kEbZeCK @endac said they’ll start planning for it on / after september in the telegram community group :grinning:

When will it start?

Would also very much appreciate a way to change how dates are displayed across the application!


Yes please! I’m an English to French translator and would love to help.


Before that, we should solve the problem of searching for other languages.
Many times, I can’t retrieve the content I need correctly in Chinese conditions. This makes me very distressed.

Every text that can be copied can can be translated permanently with “QTranslate”

Like any type of Chinese interface, but the Chinese language is missing. :upside_down_face:

Hey, please write your request in english. Thank you.

Like any type of Chinese interface, but the Chinese language is missing.So request Chinese language. :slightly_smiling_face:

If I’m not wrong, you can use the chinese language in Anytype. But you mean Anytype and its interface being chinese?

Here is a request for the general option to change the apps language.

Yes,I mean the interface is in Chinese :slightly_smiling_face:

Okay. I will merge your request into the mentioned one.

I am Chinese, and my first language is not English, so I am not very comfortable with the functional experience. Maybe we can have a multilingual plan, and machine translation is not bad
