Which language is displayed when users enter a space for the first time?
I have configured multiple languages for a space – how does Scroll Translations control which language is displayed to users when they first enter a space?
In Scroll Translations and in Confluence, languages have the following format:
languageCode_countryCode_variantCode. For example, English (UK) is
en_GB (there is no
variantCode, as this is an optional field only used for specific variants of languages).
Scroll Translations checks if there is a translation available with the same
languageCode_countryCode_variantCode values as the user's defined Confluence language, and displays that language if there is a translation available with those values.
countryCode are the same but the
variantCode is different, the translation with the same
countryCode is displayed.
languageCode is the same but the
variantCodes are different, then the translation with the same
languageCode is displayed. For example, if the Confluence language is English (UK) and the only English translation available is English (US), then Confluence pages would be displayed in English (US) by default, as they have the same
If there is no language available in the Confluence language
If there are is no language available with the same
languageCode as the Confluence language, then the default language for the space is displayed.
If a user changes the language manually
If a user changes the language manually using the language picker, the language choice is stored;
- For logged-in users: stored in the Confluence database
- For anonymous users: stored in user session (5 hours by default)
If a page has not been translated to a language
If a user navigates to a page which has not been translated, they will be met with an empty page with the following message: This page has not yet been translated to <language>.
