Set the default language of a workspace or organization
Choose the language of the Slack app that members of your workspace or Enterprise Grid organization will see by default.
When it comes to what members will see in Slack, most messages will be determined by their individual language preferences. In other words, only email invitations, SCIM-synced profiles, and announcements by Slackbot in public channels will be displayed in the default language; everything else will be in a member’s selected language.
The Slack app is currently available in English, German, French, and Spanish.
Tip: Slack in Japanese is coming soon, with more to come in the future!
Slack for Teams
Slack Enterprise Grid
Set your workspace's language preference:
Click your workspace name in the top left to open the menu.
Choose Workspace settings.
Next to Workspace language, click Expand.
Choose a language from the menu.
Org Owners and Admins can set a default language for every workspace in their organization.
This is the language the Slack app will appear in for any new members or workspaces added to the organization; however, it will not override members' changes to their individual language preferences.
Workspace Owners and Admins can also override the default language by following the steps above, but members will still see most of Slack in their preferred language.
Set your organization's language preference:
Sign in to your Slack Enterprise Grid, then click Manage Organization.
Visit the Settings page of the Admin Dashboard.
Click Organization Settings.
Under Default Language, choose a language from the menu.
