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

Note: The setting was turned on in the domain and Jacob confirmed everything is OK.



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.

Hi Moises, 

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

You may need to enable the platform setting for the user/domain: 

Navigate to


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.
