When creating a new site and naming it, you'll also have the possibility to add an emoji, to make it easier to separate from the other sites. When editing the site, the emoji will be visible to show you and your team which site you are working on, so be sure to select something distinctive.

Add translations in Settings

You'll be able to add translated versions to your: 

  • Departments
  • Message templates
  • Questions

Selecting a language for your job

When posting a job, you and your team will select the language in the job edit flow. This setting determines which:

  • Language the questions and messages will be in

When adding questions to the job ad, you will also see if those questions are available in the selected language. You can still add questions if they are missing translations, but they will be shown in your default language until you have added the translation to Settings.
