Introduction

This guide demonstrates how to view iFixit in multiple languages.

Note: There are two types of language control:

  • Site Language controls the language of the site interface. Any language selections made in the Site Language control will apply to the entire site. This can be changed on any page of the site in the uppermost header.
  • Guide Language controls apply only to the guides. There is a language selection dropdown menu on the guide header (below the uppermost header) that allows you to view your guides in all available languages. This dropdown menu will allow you to select other languages so you can view all available content without having to change the Site Language.

    • Click to expand a Language Menu in the header.

    • This is a list of languages you can view iFixit in.

    • Select your desired language.

    • For the purpose of this example, the site will be translated into Spanish.

    • If you find that the content you'd like to read in your chosen language isn't available, you can toggle the checkbox at the bottom of the language dropdown to allow for machine translation.

    • Machines are really good at a lot of things but the nuance of language is not (often) one of them. Please be forgiving with the robots.

    • The site interface is now in the selected language.

    • This applies to the interface language on the entire site.

    • When you visit a category page, guides written in your chosen language will be listed first.

    • Logically, guides written in other languages will follow the guides in the chosen language.

    • To change if you're seeing the chosen language only or all languages available, toggle the Show Other Languages switch. This is located in the Options button on the subheader.
