Change Your Wave Language

Depending on your Wave configuration, you may be able to access Wave in a language other than English. Should you wish to receive your Wave notifications in a different language, please reach out to your Wave Super User to see if your preferred language is available.

Google Chrome

If you are using Google Chrome, you will need to change the browser language. Click here to learn how to change language settings and add a language. Be sure to move your preferred language to the top, as shown in the below image, for changes in Wave to become visible.

Internet Explorer

If you are using Internet Explorer, you will need to change the Region settings in Windows via the Control Panel. Once in the Region dialog box, select your preferred language from the Format dropdown. Please note that changes made to the format will affect your browser as well as some other data, such as your computer's date/time format.

If you have changed your browser language but still see some parts of Wave in a different language, this is likely due to your company's Wave configuration. Please contact your Wave Super User for more details.
