Zoho Books is now Multilingual!

Zoho Books | July 9, 2014 | 1 min read

Today, most online accounting software products support only English. And although a cloud accounting software might make accounting a lot easier, some features may have terminologies that would be slightly difficult for non-English speakers to understand. The last thing you would want is to miss out on a wonderful feature that is lost in translation.

We have customers from across the globe, and we want to serve them better. We are thrilled to announce that Zoho Books will now support ten more languages (and it’s not  limited to just invoices and estimates but available for the whole product).

  1. German

  2. Spanish

  3. French

  4. Italian

  5. Chinese

  6. Dutch

  7. Portuguese

  8. Brazilian Portuguese

  9. Swedish

  10. Japanese

For bilingual countries like Canada, this would definitely come as a double delight. Don’t worry if you have already begun to use Zoho Books in English. Switch to your native language anytime! Select the language you prefer to do accounting in from the settings tab.

To make your smile a little wider, we’ve extended this feature to our android app. The  app is available in all the above-mentioned languages except in Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Swedish, and Dutch.

 

Contabilidad Feliz! 🙂

    HI, do you have any update on the issue with the multilanguage invoicing and email templates? We are running a global business and we love Zoho Books however is getthing more and more complex to use it as we have customers in non english speaking customers. Beside the invoices, in different languages, it would be great to have the possibility to have different email templates based again on the language.. Any idea if this will ever be developed?

    Many thanks

    We have multiple users in ZohoBooks and some are French and others are English.
    Is there away to set the language preference per user? It seems now that every time someone changes the Org Language setting it forces all accounts to that language.

    Any help would be great!

      Hi Chris,

      We’re really sorry to disappoint you but the language cannot be customized for individual users. You can only change it for the entire product.

      Regards,
      Harish

    Is it possible to have the option to choose the language of the customer so that any further invoices or estimate will be sent without having to change the language of the whole program?
