With Multilingual Reactive Web and Mobile Apps you can translate the app to other languages. Once the translations to other languages are available in the app, you can switch the language automatically or let users do it.
When translating the apps, note the following important information about the language codes:
- The default language code is en-US.
- All language codes are in the RFC 1766 standard format.
- Language codes are case sensitive.
