Introduction

You can configure your languages globally and override these settings on per-team or per-agent basis.

Here are the main configuration options:

  • Translation enabled — whether the Lokalise messages will perform any translations or not. When disabled, your conversations won't be translated.

  • Base language — this is the most common language your team speaks. All incoming conversations will get automatically translated into a base language.

  • Non-translatable languages — additional languages that your team members speak. All incoming conversations in these languages won't be translated.

Once the app is installed, your base language is set to English. In case your team base language is different, you need to click on the cog icon (⚙️) > select a different Base language and Non-translatable languages > click Save in the sidebar widget:
