ShareSync Mac Client Localization

ShareSync Mac Client can be displayed in the language of the end-user.

Important: only desktop apps with 3.X versions are updated automatically to support Operating System (OS) language.

If default locale of OS is set to English (US), English (UK), German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Japanese or French translated verbiages are displayed, date format is aligned to particular culture. We use particular list of regions to adjust date formatting: en-US, en-GB, de-DE, it-IT, nl-NL, es-LA, ja-JP, fr-CA. For all other regions we fall back to the one listed.

Notes:

  • For ShareSync language is selected automatically, there is no option to change language manually. Language switcher will be available in later updates. To change ShareSync locale adjust OS settings.
  • If locale  is detected and supported by Desktop Client, translated verbiages will be displayed.
  • If locale is detected but not supported or not detected, default verbiages in English will be displayed.
  • ShareSync Web will open with locale passed from Desktop App if Web App supports passed locale, otherwise English verbiage is displayed.
