Translating a Page in Confluence

You can easily translate your Confluence pages manually in Confluence.

Before you begin: 

  • To create a Translation ZIP you must log in with Translator permissions.
  • Make sure to have configured the wanted target languages in the Scroll Translations settings.

To translate a page

  1. Open the page you want to translate.
  2. Select the target language in the language picker.
    (info) You can only translate pages apart from the default language.
    The Edit-Button switches to a Translate-Button.
    (info) If you're using Scroll Versions, you can only translate pages that are already versioned, or excplicitely marked to be unversioned. It's not possible to translate a page that falls back to an earlier version.
  3. Click Translate.
    The page is displayed in translation-mode with the default language on the left and the target language on the right.

  4. Translate the content and click Save.
    The message Translation Status is displayed.
  5. If the translation is finished click Complete.
  6. If the translation is not finished click Not (yet) Complete.

If you are using Confluence 6, when you leave the editor, always close your editing session properly by clicking Close or Publish. Leaving the editor without closing the editing session properly (e.g. by closing the browser) can block other users from accessing and editing the page in different languages.

If the translation is finished, the target language in the language picker is marked in green with a check mark. If the translation is not finished the target language is marked in red with an exclamation mark.


If you edit the page in the default language, the page gets outdated and must be translated again. If you do not want to mark your pages to be outdated, please deactivate the check box Outdate translations.
