Change Your Profile's Local Language In SharePoint Online

In this article, I would like to share the steps to change the language in SharePoint Personal Profile page.

  • SharePoint provides the option to see the display languages, country/regions, and time zone in our profile page.
  • If your organization allows it, we can also change our language and regional settings but these settings are applied only to our View of organization’s SharePoint site.

E.g. - If your organization has SharePoint Intranet site and you wish to see the profile page in your native language, you can change your language. It won’t affect the other users.


Follow the below listed steps to change the language in your personal profile.

Step 1

Open your SharePoint site.


Step 2 

Then, click on the profile image to open the profile pane, as shown in below.


Step 3 

From the "My Account" tab, select “About me” to navigate the profile page.


Step 4 

When you click “About me”, it will navigate to the profile page (DELVE) where you can change your settings.


Step 5 

On the delve screen, click on the “Update Profile” button as shown below. It will navigate to update the profile information page.


Step 6 

Then, scroll down the contact information page to see the “How can I see the language and regional settings?”


Step 7 

Click the link, when you click the link it will expand and show the "Click here, click the ellipsis (…) and then choose Language and Region."

Then, click the “Click Here” to choose the language and region as shown in below image.

It will navigate to Edit Details page.


Step 8 

On the "Edit details" page, click on the ellipsis (…) to get "Language and Region" option.


Step 9 

Then, select the language from language section dropdown, as shown below.


Step 10 

Once you select the language (here I selected Spanish), click Add button to add the language.


Select the priority of the language by clicking on the up arrow.


Step 11 

Finally, click “Save and Close” button to save your selected language.


After you click the "Save and Close" button, it will show the pop-up like below. Then, click OK button.


After some time, you can see the profile page with selected language, as shown below.
