Change language and data format settings

To change your language, navigate to My Profile. Under Preferences, see the Language option to set the language.

Specify language

By default, the language that ThoughtSpot UI displays depends on the system locale. It is simple to change it using the Profile interface.

The Language selection specifies more than just the language: it sets the locale, which controls both the language choice and standard data formats for date and number. So, if you set French as the default locale in your profile settings, the interface updates to reflect this. Be sure to refresh your browser page.

For example, in the United States the number format for large numbers uses the comma thousands separator and a period decimals separator, and looks like this: xxx,xxx.xx. In most European countries, they use the reverse notation, with comma decimals separator and period thousands separator, like this:,xx.

In addition to American English (en-US), ThoughtSpot supports the following locales:

Locale Language
da-DK Dansk
de-DE Deutsche
en-AU English (Australia)
en-CA English (Canada)
en-GB English (United Kingdom)
en-US English (United States)
es-US Español (Latinoamérica)
es-ES Español (España)
fr-CA Français (Canada)
fr-FR Français (France)
it-IT Italiano
nl-NL Nederland (beta)
nb-NO Norsk
pt-BR Português (Brazil)
pt-PT Português (Portugal)
fi-FI Suomi
sv-SE Svenska
zh-CN 中文(简体)
ja-JP 日本語

ThoughtSpot translates keywords, operators, and error messages. See the keyword reference for all supported languages.

ThoughtSpot DOES NOT translate formulas, or metadata entered by the user. For example, if you name a visualization ‘Quarterly Sales’ in any variant of English and subsequently change the locale to a variant of French, the visualization remains ‘Quarterly Sales’ and does not become ‘Ventes trimestrielles’.
