Change document language

The language of the documents is determined during the upload based on the user's choice; it can be detected automatically or be, for all the documents, the one chosen by the user from the list of available languages.
If you realize that a document's language is not the right one, either because the automatic detection algorithm made a wrong prediction or because the user's choice for all documents does not apply to that document, you can change it.

This can be done in the list view of the Documents tab.

To change the language of documents, select them—multiple selection with Shift+Click or Ctrl+Click is possible—then select Change language on the toolbar above the list.

You can only change the language of documents that are not in the project's language and the only target language is the project language. The operation is irreversible.


The language change operation requires the repetition of the linguistic-semantic analysis for affected documents and the reorganization of the document indexes, therefore it is carried out in the background and can take a considerable amount of time.
During the operation, affected documents are grayed out.
At the end of the operation, a notification appears inviting you to reload the library to see the effects of the change.
