Change your display language

You can change the display language for Office 365, Lync Online, and SharePoint Online—all at the same time.

  1. Go to Settings Settings: update your profile, install software and connect it to the cloud > Office 365 settings > Language.
  2. On the Language page, select your language, and then click Save.

Where will this change show up?

  • When you change the display language in Office 365, you'll see that language in Office 365, in Lync Online, and in SharePoint Online.
  • This setting doesn’t apply to Outlook Web App, Calendar, or People. To change those settings, at the top of the page in Office 365, click Outlook. On the Outlook Web App page, click Settings Settings: update your profile, install software and connect it to the cloud > Options > Settings > Regional. For more information, see Regional settings.
  • If you change your display language in Outlook Web App, those settings don’t change the language in Office 365. You also have to change your display language for Outlook Web App when you sign in to Outlook Web App for the first time in Office 365.
  • If you set your language in SharePoint Online, and then change it in Office 365, the Office 365 setting overrides the SharePoint Online setting.
  • Changing your display language settings doesn’t affect the language settings for anyone else.
