Language Packs

Learn@UW users have been accustomed to creating content in another language. Now you can experience the rest of your course site in these languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)
  • French (Canadian)
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Spanish (Latin America)
  • Turkish

Note: All help documentation in the DoIT Knowledge Base for Learn@UW will still be in English.
UW System will consider acquiring additional language packs as Desire2Learn makes them available.

Usage Modes

Individual users can opt to have their entire Learn@UW experience (across all course sites) in one of the available languages.

Language instructors can determine the language on a specific course site, overriding the settings of individual users.

Getting Started

For information on how to activate these settings, please see: Changing Language Settings

For tips on preparing students to use a course site entirely in a target language, please see: Preparing Students for Course Sites in another Language

As always, instructors will continue to have the capability to rename tools on their site: Renaming Course Tools in the Navbar
