change language


We have been changing the language in the general setting to German according to Choosing a Default Language | Confluence Data Center and Server 7.11 | Atlassian Documentation but it would not affect confluence.

How do we do that?

Thanks, Reto

You do what the documentation says.

My guess is that you, in your account, have chosen a language in your profile, so you're not seeing the default when you log in because you've overridden it.  Try visiting the site again without logging in, and then as a user who has not chosen a language.

Thanks for the quick answer. Yes my profile was set to English. After changing that, the administration interface changed to German, but not my wiki / spaces. 

My indexing language is still English, but that should not matter. 

I can only visit my site while being loggt in. 

Your content won't change, Confluence is not a translation engine.

Yes of course. But the menues should change. 

And now after a couple of minutes they have changed. 

Everything is ok. 

Thanks, Reto
