Change the display language of Möbius

The language used by the Möbius user interface (Example — buttons, menus, etc.) is determined by the preferred language of your web browser or operating system.

The Möbius platform doesn't have its own display language setting; this information is pulled from the web browser or operating system that you're using to access Möbius.

NOTE: Möbius content can be authored in any language as desired by the content author. Changing the language of your browser or operating system won't change the display language that the content has been authored in.

The following languages are supported for the Möbius user interface:

  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Polish
  • Spanish

Each web browser and operating system has a unique set of instructions for changing the display language.

TIP: In general when changing the language of your web browser or operating system, be sure to:

  • Ensure third party cookies are enabled (check out Access using an LMS)
  • Ensure that you're using a browser that's compatible with Möbius (Firefox®, Google ChromeTM, Internet Explorer® 11, or Safari®)
  • Restart your computer after making changes to your language settings
