Skylight is a web-based business management software that has a global user base. Therefore, English might not be your preferred default language, so Skylight added support for international languages which means users can choose the language of their choice. This guide will show how to change the default language on your account.

Change default language settings for your user account


You can switch to a different language and set your preferred default language. To do so, follow the steps given below:

  1. Hover over Settings on the navigation bar and the click PersonalSettings from the drop-down menu that appears, or follow this link
  2. In the Personal Settings screen, click the drop-down option next to Language (1); here you will see all the available languages in Skylight. English is selected by default.
  3. In the drop-down menu, select the preferred language as per your requirement and click Save .

Now all the menu options and in-app texts will change to the selected language. If you do not happen to see the language you chose displayed, this might mean it is not fully integrated yet. Please let us know you require this language by requesting it, and we will try to make it happen as soon as possible.

We currently have the following languages enabled:

Afrikaans, Czech, Dutch, English, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Ukrainian.
