How can a user change its language ? I cannot find the option anymore in the “Account” page.



It used to be here (see picuture in our user documentation) but I cannot find it anymore... Is there another way to do this ? I need that my users see Good Data in french.



This support link seems to indicate that a platform setting is required. But I do not find anything for this.


Thanks in advance and Best Regards

There you can see a list of available platfom settings. Using the interface at the bottom  you can specify the requested platform setting to add or update.  In this case enableChangeLanguage , set the value to true  and then hit submit

When you go to the account settings again, you will see the change language option.



Hi Moises, 

Thanks for the quick reply ! Unfortunately, I thinks our domain has a problem … For other parameters, I can see an edit form.

I sent you a PM.



I just see that the request is tagged as “solved”, but I’m still not able to set language for My user.


I really need help to solve this issue because our customer cannot go to production with English settings.
