Source Language

By default, your Paligo instance is set to use one source language and the content will be marked up with this language. This is usually English but can be set to a different language by customer support. This means that all topics and publications are marked up as English content.

Content in other languages is then a translation of the source language. The source language is also used for various other parts of the content, such as labels that are auto-generated (for example for Admonitions).

To check the source language of your Paligo instance:

  1. Log in to Paligo via a user account that has administrator permissions.

  2. Select the avatar in the top-right corner. User avatar. It shows the user's image and their name. Next to the name is a downward pointing arrow, which when selected, reveals a menu.

  3. Select Settings from the menu. Cog icon.

  4. Select the Languages tab. Translate_small.png
