Language Configuration

In normal cases Nextcloud will automatically detect the language of the Web-GUI. If this does not work properly or you want to make sure that Nextcloud always starts with a given language, you can use the default_language parameter.

Please keep in mind, that this will not effect a users language preference, which has been configured under “personal -> language” once he has logged in.

Please check Transifex language codes for the list of valid language codes.



  "default_language" => "en",

This parameters can be set in the config/config.php
