DocuWare – a language whiz for international teams

By providing its user interface in 24 languages, DocuWare meets users in their language of choice. This is incredibly important for companies with locations around the globe as well as those who have employees that come from a wide variety of backgrounds. The latest editions to this roster? Slovenian and Vietnamese.

DocuWare is used all over the world. Plus, teams are increasingly made up of people who speak a wide variety of native languages. To make everyone's work day as easy as possible, DocuWare is available in 24 languages. And starting with DocuWare version 7.8, this list has been expanded to include Vietnamese and Slovenian.  

Users can just choose the language of the user interface of the DocuWare Web Client for themselves, regardless of the main company language or location.

Tip: Blog in your native language
For those who prefer to read this blog in a language other than English: Use your browser's service for automatic translation. It's easy to do, and thanks to mature technologies, it now delivers very good results. If it's not an option automatically offered to you by the browser, read here how to enable it.

DocuWare also supports a variety of number and date formats and displays them appropriately for each user. For example, while a Vietnamese colleague might enter 19/05/23 as an index term in a date field, the date will still be displayed as 05/19/23 for colleagues using a US format setting.

Select language

By default, DocuWare will open in your browser language. If you would like to select a different language or use special formats for numbers and dates, select Profile & Settings in the  DocuWare menu and then switch to the General tab:
