How To Change the Event Language and Display Text

If you want to host events in a language other than English, you can change your language settings and customize the display text your attendees will see.

First, you'll change your event language—the language displayed on your event channel and its content—on your BigMarker homepage. However, language changes applied on your homepage do not apply to display text within individual webinars. That is, when you change the event language on your BigMarker homepage from English to Spanish, all webinars hosted by your channel will be titled in Spanish. But within the webinar room, tabs and display text will still show in English. 

However, you can change and customize the language of the display text your attendees will see in the webinar room in Channel Settings, which we'll describe further below.

Once you select your new language, all menu choices and text on your channel, and all of the content hosted by your channel, will be displayed in the new language, as seen below. However, the attendee view of that same content will still be in English. However, you can change the display text for attendees in Channel Settings.

The Language tab contains common display text that is visible to attendees within the webinar room, and the option to change the language of this text.  

Change the preferred display language in the dropdown menu on the right-hand side of the screen. Once you've selected your new language, all of the display text listed below will automatically convert to that language. If you'd like to edit any of the translated display text, you can do so by manually entering alternative copy in the respective text box. Once you're done, click Save to complete.
