We’ve just updated Publitas. Find out what’s new.

New Languages

We’re glad to announce that Publitas now supports 27 languages, woohoo! Our language settings allow you to choose the language in which people will get to see your digital catalogs. This includes the texts for the loading screen, the number of pages, and the button descriptions. Just to be clear, this setting will not change the language of the texts in your PDF.

Here’s a list of all the languages that you can now choose:

  • Basque
  • Bulgarian
  • Chinese
  • Croatian
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Lithuanian
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Russian
  • Serbian
  • Slovak
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Turkish
  • Ukrainian

We’ve also made sure that you can change languages on a group level (i.e. for all the publications in one group) or on a publication level (i.e. for a specific publication).

Choosing a Language on Group Level

To change the default language of all publications in a group, go to Language & Branding, select a default language from the drop down list, and click on Save. All existing and new publications in this group will now have the new default language.

Choosing a Language on Publication Level

You can override the default language of a group for a specific publication. For new publications, simply choose a language when you upload your PDF. To change the language of an existing publication, click on Edit, select a language from the drop down list, and click on Save. Please note that when you set a language for a specific publication, any language changes on the group level won’t affect that publication.
