Localization

Plans:
  • Personal
  • Team
  • Corporate
Editions:
  • SmartStart
  • Corporate
  • Global

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

Limitations

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 12 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 12 languages:

  • English (US)
  • French (France)
  • French (Canada)
  • German
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Lithuanian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Brasil)
  • Russian
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Spanish (Latin America)
  • Swedish

Your actual list of available languages (in Locale Preferences) will depend on your company's Edition, and whether your company has purchased one or more languages.

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.
