How do I enable multiple languages for my job posts?

By default, the basic elements on the job pages are set to the language based on your browser language and/or location. You can change this to 14 other languages: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Latvian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish or Turkish. You can also offer 2 or more languages, a subtle language switch will then appear at the top of your job post. You can decide per job which language(s) you’re offering.

The language switch automatically translates:

  • The text in the apply button: ‘Apply now’.
  • The job type in this job, like ‘Full-time’.
  • The standard ‘Our website’ URL in the footer.
  • All the English texts in the application form, like ‘Personal info’ and all the field titles.

Using multiple languages

  1. Go to your settings (top right corner).
  2. Click ‘Company details’.
  3. Then click 'Languages' in the left menu bar. 
  4. Enable multiple languages - if they aren’t already - by switching the toggle.
  5. Go back to your dashboard.
  6. Click ‘Edit’ to edit an existing job post or add a new one.
  7. In the top menubar, you’ll find a language dropdown. Click ‘Edit languages’.
  8. Enable the languages you want to use by switching the toggle in the ‘In use’ column.
  9. Choose a default language. This language will be always shown by default when someone visits your job post.
  10. Click ‘Save’.
  11. Your job editor is now set to one of your activated languages. The language switch at the top of your editor tells you in which language you’re currently editing.
  12. Switch the language by selecting another language in the top of your editor.
  13. Change the text and hit ‘Save changes’.
  14. Click ‘Preview’ (the eye icon) to view your job post. In case you’re using multiple languages, there’s now a language switch in the top menu bar. It’ll always stay visible, even when scrolling down.

Delete languages

Want to get rid of an activated language? Follow these steps:

  1. Click ‘Edit’ in the job post you want to change.
  2. Choose ‘Edit languages’ at the language switch in the top menubar.
  3. Switch off those languages you don’t want to offer anymore.
  4. Hit ‘Save’.
  5. Choose ‘Save changes’ at the top right corner.

Notice that your translated texts of the languages you just de-activated, will still be saved. When activating a language again, your translated text will show up again.
