Switching between languages

To check if the macro works according to plan, use the drop-down in the upper-right corner and choose another language you used on that page.

If you want to change the language of the entire Confluence interface, including the main text, you'll have to change the language in your user settings.

    If this page has content in the language matching your user language, it will now be displayed to you. You may have to refresh the page for the change to take effect.
