How To: Switch Your Display Language

Posted February 16, 2011 by Geni | 2 Comments

We love that Geni is used the whole world over. It’s very important to us to bridge the language gap. Thanks to Tr8n, we now have many translation options. Here’s how to switch which language Geni displays in:

1) Go to the language drop-down menu in the upper right-hand corner.

Step One

2) Scroll down, and then select the language you’d like to read Geni in.

Step Two

3) Now you can use Geni in your native language.

Step Three

If the implementation of your language isn’t complete yet, you can help make it better. Keep yours eyes out for the next How-to post to find out how.

    The possibility to translate into so many languages is wonderful indeed. In fact it is not just wonderful but absolutely necessary and I am really happy that Geni provides this possibility (without which most of my family would not be able to use it). Nevertheless it is strange that one of the most important elements of a profile u2013 family relationships u2013 are not possible to translate. It looks really strange when in the middle of (in my case) Hungarian text you see the relationship (son of , father of, etc.) in English. Another important improvement would be to include country names, months in the given language in dropdown boxes.
