As well as each user being able to set their language preference, before they login, Instructors can set the navigation language for a particular module. This may for example be a useful tool for language courses.

To set this up is two easy steps:

From within your module, click on the  Customisation link within the Control Panel:

Select "Properties" from the list of options:

From this page you can set the language preference at Section 6 by selecting your preferred language from the drop down menu:

There are some points to consider before changing a module language

  • If you choose a language this will override the default language (English UK) but if a user has specifically entered a choice of language this will be maintained unless you choose the "enforce language pack option"
  • Be cautious only to set the Enforce option where you are confident that all your students will be able to navigate using the the chosen language - they are not able to change the language for your module if you have enforced it.
  • The package does not translate any content - nor will it change edited menu items - so if for example you have already translated menu items into Welsh then it does not attempt to translate these again
  • It does not create bilingual menus- if you need these you will have to create them yourselves through the edit course menu option.
