How to Change the Default Language of a Dropbox Business Account

Dropbox is available in 15+ languages spoken worldwide. Besides English and Spanish, the cloud service is available in a number of other European languages. Dropbox’s default language is English (US). If you would like to use a different language, then you must change the default language from the admin settings. Find out how you can do that using these simple-to-follow steps.

Prerequisites:

  • A Dropbox business account
  • Admin login credentials
  • Step 1: Log In to Your Dropbox Account

Go to Dropbox.com and enter your login credentials. As said earlier, you must be a Dropbox admin to perform this action.

  • Step 2: Go to the Admin Console

Locate the admin console option in the left navigation menu of your Dropbox account’s homepage. This will take you to the page where you can change several admin settings ranging from language to security.

  • Step 3: Click on Settings Icon

Once you are on the admin page, click on the Settings options seen on the left-side menu.

  • Step 4: Click on the Team Profile Tab in the Settings Page

Locate the Account section and click on the Team Profile tab. This function allows you to make basic changes to your Dropbox account such as adding a logo, naming your team, and of course, changing the default language.

  • Step 5: Click on the Default Language Option

Find the Default Language tab listed under the Team Profile option. Notice the Change button on the right side and click on it.

  • Step 6: Choose Your Preferred Language

Upon clicking, Dropbox displays all the languages that it currently supports. Choose your preferred language and click on it.

  • Step 7: The Default Language Has Been Changed

That’s it! Your preferred language will appear throughout your org’s Dropbox account.

Beware of accidental language selection. If you choose a language that you don’t know, you may have a difficult time navigating to this page to change the language again.
