Our Contact Picker can display in any language. We support a number of language packs with this option which will change the language that is displayed by the Contact Picker.

The contact picker does not automatically detect the language. Your application will need to set it explicitly if you want to display a language other than English.

Our growing list of languages includes Bulgarian, Chinese, Dutch, German, French, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Contact us if you want a different language.

For example, you may invoke this code as the page loads or update the language at any time. Please note that calling cloudsponge.init resets the contact picker and will close it if it is currently open.

  // other widget options ...
  // let's change the language to something else, like French:
  locale: 'fr'

If you want to change a few of the default labels on the contact picker, look at localeData¬†instead. It is intended to be used to change the default messaging on a few targeted phrases in the contact picker. Please don’t use these two options together. The behaviour is not defined.

Type: string
Default: en
Sets the language to one of our standard translations. Currently supports 'bg' | 'cn' | de | 'en' | 'es' | 'fr' | 'it' | ja | 'nl' | 'pt'.
