Webflow interface in local languages (Editor, Designer)

I know that the vast majority of Webflow customers here are probably from English speaking countrieswith English speaking clients. However, those working in countries with other native languages should add up to a good number too.

I'd love to see the CMS interface translated into different languages. I certainly would be more comfortable to sell Webflow sites to clients whom I know are not that confident in English.

I would also be happy to help with translating into German, and I'm sure others would be happy to help with their languages.

    Would be cool if the CMS (Editor) would detect the language settings of the site and update the language of the interface. Might not affect user-generated things like collection names.

    Same applies to translation to Dutch.

    I think it would go a long way if Webflow starts with just providing us with an option for "DIY translation." For example, Webflow Settings panel would have a form to translate each UI text string. Save it, and it would be activated for the translator's account while also be submitted to a public repo where other people can contribute to translate unfinished text strings and refine existing translations. 

    While it's possible for the Webflow dev team to hire a professional translator to do this in a more verified manner, but such process will likely take a very long time especially for the languages that are less requested. It will be a little trickier to maintain the integrity of community-driven translation, but at least those who desperately need it would be able to do it themselves and deploy in their project without having to wait for years before their language is officially translated.

    This feature is currently crucial for me to sell the webflow cms to some clients. Needed language for the editor in my case is german.

    I agree with Hiro. If we could at least get the option change the titles of the ui ourself, I could get my german customers to buy the webflow cms.

    I would make it two defferent whishes, -OR- prioritizse Editor. 

    99% of the Designers can read english, else they would not be here

    only 40% of the customers using the editor in non-english-coubtries read english well enough to be able to use the editor! THIS IS A NO-GO!

    We need more comments and more votes on this one!


    btw: Squarespace now also has mutli-language-support! at least for the most important ones: german, spanish

    It would be great if the editor could be available in "French" for the clients of our web agency. We have a strong demand internally :)

    Actually just lost a project because the editor is not localized and I can't hand it over like this. The person uploading CMS content does not necessarily know English and it was not acceptable this way.
