In efforts to support photographers and their clients globally, Zenfolio allows you to determine the language of the pages you will view in the Dashboard of your account and the language that your visitors will see in your Website View.


Setting the Language for the Dashboard


You can change the language you see in the the Dashboard of your account at any time by logging in, scrolling to the footer of the page and clicking on Language. Here you will be able to change the Zenfolio provided text - but this will not affect text that you provide, such as photo captions and custom page text.
