In 2020 we rolled out the multilingual communication site feature which allowed a site owner to enable multiple languages for page and news publishing in a SharePoint communication site.
With this update, a user with appropriate edit permissions can update selected multilingual user interface (MUI) elements in all the languages enabled in a multilingual communication site in the same editing session. MUI elements enable users to see and use SharePoint site interfaces in the language they prefer, instead of the default language that was selected when the site was created.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79847.
When this will happen
- Targeted Release (entire organization): rollout begins late March 2021
- Standard Release: rollout complete by late May 2021
How this will affect your organization
These are the MUI elements that are supported in this update:
- Site name and description
- Site and hub navigation
- Footer name and navigation.
Prior to this update, a SharePoint site owner/editor could update the translation for an MUI element one language at a time. With this update, they will be able to update all enabled language translations in a single session.
For example, by clicking or tapping the new option ‘Translate site name’, they will be able to edit the title in the languages supported by this communications site in a single session.
What you need to do to prepare
You may want to inform site owners of this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
- Create multilingual communication sites, pages, and news
- Set up a multilingual site name, navigation and footer
