How to Add Another Language to Your Privacy Policy

Common questions regarding languages are:

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

 

Choosing a language for your privacy policy

Simply locate any of the “Generate privacy policy” buttons. From there you can select the language you would like to generate it in.

To generate the privacy policy in the language you need, click on the green Start generating button 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):

Adding a language to an existing privacy policy

For any previously generated privacy policy (for example in English) iubenda allows you to add a translation in one of the available languages. The translation will present the same data controller and the same list of services of the “original” version, except for any custom services 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 edit page:

Add one or more languages to your documents

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/cookie policy will be automatically added to the other languages (except, as anticipated a little earlier, any custom services).
