Organization language for automated messages and invitation emails

This feature is only available to organization owners and administrators.

Zulip has been translated or partially translated into dozens of languages by Zulip's amazing community of volunteer translators. You can see which languages Zulip supports on Transifex.

If you'd like to help by contributing as a translator, see the Zulip translation guidelines to get started.

Each user can use Zulip with their preferred language. Additionally, if your organization has a primary language other than American English, you can set the language used for the organization's automated messages and invitation emails. This setting:

  • Determines the language used for automated messages sent to streams by the Zulip notification bot. (Automated messages sent to a single user will use that user's preferred language).

  • Determines the language used for outgoing invitation emails.

  • Is used as the default language for new user accounts when Zulip cannot detect their language preferences from their browser, including all users created via the Zulip API.
