How can I change the language of the Qlik Sense interface?

My OS is in Spanish, but I want to work with Qlik Sense in English? 

I found this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHhQFi7zhJc

Is this the only way?

Thanks, Karl

Hi Karl,

Qlik Sense runs in the display language of the operating system of your computer.

So it is expected behavior at the moment.

There is description about interface langauage and how to change it. Please refer it.

Changing the preferred language of your browser works if you are using firefox, but i dont think it works for IE or Chrome.

Qlik Sense Desktop runs in the display (menu) language of Windows. If you're accessing Qlik Sense in a browser, it will run in the menu language of the browser (Chrome, Safari), your Windows language (IE), or according to the preferred content language setting (Firefox). Details in the link provided by Takuma.

Hi Tanvi,

Do you mean that you want to create a multilingual app, where you can switch for instance field names from one language to another inside the app?

If so, you would need to proceed similar to what is posted here Handling Multiple Languages

I have not tried this in Qlik Sense myself, so I'm not a 100% sure it can be done like that. I'll have a go at it and post back later. If you work it out, please let us know.

If what you mean is that you want the ability to switch the user interface language (menus etc) from a "button" inside Qlik Sense, then that is not possible at the moment.

Hi Fredrik,

Thanks for the reply , I will try the method shown in the post. Changing the text on object in multiple language is what required as of now.

Thanks,

Tanvi

Hi Fredrik,

I am successful in implementing the translations in multiple languages for my objects and charts in qlik sense.

I want to know one more thing whether we can change default language of qlik sense (interface) not related to our data model but related to various qlik sense objects to multiple language  like we can do in qlikview.

Thanks,

Tanvi

Currently Qlik Sense uses various browser or operating system settings to identify the user locale, and that locale will in turn determine the user interface language on menus etc. There is no individual setting to enforce a user interface locale for a specific app.

The latest information about how Qlik Sense detects locales is available here:
