How to Add Another Language to Your Documents

Common questions regarding languages are:

  • How can I use a language other than English in my document?
  • Can I add a language to an existing privacy policy/terms and conditions? Does this translated document automatically update and incorporate the same settings as the original?
  • How can I remove a language?

Choosing a language for your document

To generate the privacy policy/terms and conditions in the language you need, click on Start generating and select the language you’d like to use from the Language drop-down menu (available in: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish):

Choose a language for your privacy policy/terms and conditions

Adding a language

For any previously generated document (for example in English) iubenda allows you to add a translation in one of the available languages.

The translation will have the same information as the “original” version, except for any custom services/clauses that you may have written, which, as it was written by you, will have to be recreated by you for the new language. You may choose to use tools like DeepL or Google Translate to help you here (though we recommend that you consult with a native to make sure that the translations are ok).

The translation can be added by clicking on the Add language button in the “Manage languages” box, in the right column of the privacy policy/terms and conditions edit page:

Alternatively, you can add one or more languages to your documents on your site/app page (Dashboard > [your website]):

Add one or more languages to your documents

Any change made in any language of the privacy policy/terms and conditions will be automatically added to the other languages (except, as anticipated a little earlier, any custom services).

Removing a language

To remove one or more languages from your documents, go on your site/app page (Dashboard > [your website]), click on the language(s) you want to delete, then Remove:
