Sometime back, we were discussing about the Variation Sites, and the User Preferred Languages etc., All those stuff will not help, if we did not modify the Language Settings in Site Settings. A small tip, but a bit useful.

Hope we remember, we modified the preferred language as Hindi. Once, we modify that, all the content will be displayed in Hindi with respect to the DELVE, OneDrive etc.,


Even the Admin page will be displayed in Hindi.


But, when I go to the Site Collection, Still the site collection is in English.


To display the Site Collection in Hindi, we need to change the Language Settings under Site Settings.

Let me go to Site Settings.

Under Site Administration, Click on Language Settings.


Click the required alternative languages from the list provided.


Let me Select Hindi and Click OK.


Now, while coming back to Site Home page, except the content, all other default lables were turned into Hindi.


Happy Coding,

Sathish Nadarajan.
