Cannot change project's default language Edited


I tried to follow the instructions on this page, but I don't have the step 6, so I cannot change the default language. And I didn't find another way to do that. (I want to change to French as default).

Did I miss something?

Thanks for your help

Hello Pier-Lionel,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

As per the screenshot, I can see that you are using a next-gen project and currently the option to select a default language is available only for a classic project.

This is the view of a classic project Language support:

We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of the ability to select the default language on next-gen:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.

For more details about the language support on next-gen, please check the documentation below:


Alright, thanks for your help. Hope this feature will be done soon.

Sorry, Angélica. Then, if you have created the Project, after you cant change the default language? So, means you must créate a new Project? Repeat the all again????


When using Next-gen projects, the default language must be selected at the moment the project is created. After that, it's not possible to change.

On Classic projects, it's possible to add multiple languages and change the default one whenever it's necessary.

I checked the feature request I linked on my previous response and it's already closed. They decided to not implement this feature on next-gen.
