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.

    I most likely have to switch to Wix editor x because of this issue.. They even have an option to select Monday as the first day of the week and use 24h clock on CMS date fields. I'm Norwegian with Norwegian clients and not all can understand English. Especially older people.

    It's difficult to sell webflow to clients when the CMS is not in their own language. The language barrier prevents them to reasonably use webflow in their every day work because they don't project themselves using this tool. It's an important feature if webflow wants to gain a substainable ground outside non English speaking countries against more traditional CMS. I also believe that the number of votes for this subject is not representative of its importance because the lacking of this feature is sufficient to discourage anyone who gives importance to client experience.

    Such an important feature. First time I’ve ever pitched a web project to a non-native English client and while demonstrating the CMS I realized their team may not be able to use it.


    Need local language support immediately. How difficult could it be?

    This feature missing is seriously harming my business as older or more conservative clients don't wan't to work with an english editor. I would need German.

    I'm a Japanese who loves Webflow. Believing in the possibility of no-code, I started using Webflow a few years ago.


    I would like to spread the wonderfulness of Webflow to Japan, but in Japan, "applications that cannot use my native language" are avoided. Especially those used by companies have a strong tendency, and even if Wordpress that can translate the interface is adopted, Webflow that can not do it is not even included in the options for introduction consideration.


    We are anxious to realize "Webflow interface of local language".

    WTF why is this not a thing

    The truth is, I am disappointed in the wefblow program, the dumbest thing I have put the idea since 2018 to place the multi-language in the interface and it has not put it but one day I talked to the support he told me that multi-language arrived for the year 2019 or 2020 I do not know but If we are in 2021, the truth is, if it is more gross, I have seen another program that is similar, webflow already has a Spanish language but the only webflow that does not give Spanish language for the interface, which is disappointing, that is why I do not want to use this program until it is in Spanish until when you will last but we have spent almost three years no news. I hope it can get there is something important for one to understand what it means because we need to understand everything in Spanish thanks

    I could use German language in Editor would be happy to translate label files

    I think this is an easy to implement and very useful function. As Webflow gains acceptance around the world it would only be logical that clients can upload CMS content using an GUI in their language. I'm sure the community would help with the translations. It would be a win win for Webflow and users.

    Does anyone know more about whether the Webflow CMS interface is translated into German or are other languages ​​planned?

    Maybe let users contribute translations ? Even in .po files or something it'd definitely work for everybody and users would be able to share community files and fork it out for their own project.

    Keep up the great work Webflow !

    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.

    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 :)
