Before adding a new language, set the default (primary) language for your Freshchat account. This should be the most common language spoken by your customers. It will also be the default language if their browser is set to a language that Freshchat doesn’t support.


Note

The language that you set here is for Topics and FAQ translations.


Add Languages


Go to Settings > Languages


Set a primary language, then add other languages by clicking ‘Add a language’ and select the language from the drop-down.




Important Note: Primary language can be set only once. You cannot change it later.


By default, newly added languages are disabled. You have to enable it by switching the toggle to the right.



FAQs and Topics can now be translated in the enabled languages.
