We’re excited to have so many users from all over the world. Currently, we only offer Magma in English and Japanese but setting the browser to auto-translate could improve the experience for our other non-English-speaking users. This guide will show you the steps to do that a little further down.

Changing language in Application Settings

Changing the language in your application settings will apply the change to your account. So, no matter what device you log onto next, Magma will remember your language choice.

For now, only English and Japanese languages are offered, but we do intend to add more supported languages over time.

  1. Open a canvas;

  2. Open the Edit menu and go to Application Settings;

  3. in the General tab, find the language setting and change accordingly;

  4. Save your settings and close the window.

Setting Auto-translate

Note: We understand that auto-translate features may be inaccurate and have some language errors, but hopefully it will help a little bit.

  • Go to Settings
