SmartRecruiters users can select a language in their Locale Preferences to localize nearly all of SmartRecruiters and the Hiring App. 


Currently, localization does not extend to:

  • user-generated content such as custom job fields, interview types, screening questions, or any values that you or your users add to SmartRecruiters. 
  • SmartRecruiters’ Marketplace or Partner portals
  • Paying for job ads or services in local currencies

Localization for users

As any type of SmartRecruiters user, you can use SmartRecruiters in one of the 8 supported languages and see most of the platform in your language, including: UI, top priority email notifications, standard fields (job, candidate, and Department/Brand/Country), hiring stages, screening questions, mobile apps, etc

SmartRecruiters' user interface is available in 8 languages:

  • English (US)
  • French (France)
  • French (Canada)
  • German
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Polish
  • Spanish (Latin America)
  • Swedish

Note that if your company has teams hiring in multiple languages, you may see a mix of languages for custom content such as custom screening questions and custom emails. This is because SmartRecruiters doesn’t translate your custom content.
