It is possible to set the language that is used to navigate Blackboard. There are a number of supported languages that can be selected by the user.
Changing your default language must be done from the main Blackboard Welcome page - so if you are currently logged in you will need to log out first before selecting a language. You will find a language selection box on the Welcome Page that looks like this
Select your preferred language and press Go.
You should then see the welcome page again but with the main controls in your chosen language.; There are a few points you should know before changing the language
- To change back (or to another language) you should repeat the process but using your new choice in the above step - For English you have to select English UK
- Language packs only translate the standard built in navigation tools - it will not translate any content or any navigation tools where the wording has been edited from the standard Blackboard terminology.
