  2. Click Accounts and Settings.
  3. Click Advanced.
  4. Go to Language and click the small Pencil icon

  6. Click Save.
Our supported language is English , Chinese , Français , Italiano , and Español .

Thanks for following on this thread, @raphael2.


Changing the language settings in QuickBooks Online is unavailable at this time. We’re continuously looking for ways to enhance our product features.


Our customers’ voice is important to us and we take feedback as an opportunity to guide us on which area we need to improve on. I’m taking note of this idea and passing it along here on my end.


Alternatively, you can use the Language settings of the browser to change the one you're currently using. For Google Chrome, here are the steps.

  1. Tap the three-dot icon to select Settings.
  2. Then, click the Advanced link below to access the Languages section.
  3. From there, hit the drop-down for Language to access the Add Language window.
  4. Mark the box for the one you want to use, and then press the Add button.

For other browsers, the following article contains some links on how to update the language settings: Microsoft Forms.


I also invite you to visit the QuickBooks Resource Centre to view the latest news and product enhancements.


 Reach out to me if you have any other concerns or questions. I’ll get back to assist further. Have a great rest of the day.

Where is your company located? If you are using QBO Canada (French) version or QBO France version, you will get French as the default language.

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, KevinSQ.

 

I can help share some insights about changing the language in QuickBooks Online. For now, the language feature is only available in QuickBooks Online International versions. You might be using a US version of QuickBooks, which is why you're unable to see the language option. 

 

Please refer to these regions that currently offer these languages:

 

  • Chinese
  • French
  • Italian
  • Spanish

Please let me know if you have any other concerns. I'm always here to help.

Philadelphia

 

But our account service is from ShenZhen China.

 

So, if we can't switch the language to Chinese, it might not be possible for us to continue to subscribe to this service.

You have to open a brand new QBO account and utilize a 3rd party migration tool.

Thanks for checking in with us, KevinSQ.

 

The QuickBooks Online (QBO) prices are determined based on the unique needs of each country or the region on where QuickBooks operated. Also, it depends on the discount promo provided by Intuit for the QuickBooks product.

 

If we compare the prices from the US, Hongkong, and Singapore regions, there's only a slight difference between the prices.

 

You can check out these links below for the price comparison:

 

 

I've got a link here that provides you with articles about managing your business in QBO: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/help-articles/misc/03/help-articles-global?label=QuickBo....

 

Keep me posted if you need a hand with running transactions or any QBO related. I'm glad to help. Have a great day ahead.

Hi!

I want to use Quickbooks from Argentina, and use it in Spanish.
When I select my country it automatically sends me to the global version, and there I can't change the language.
Thanks!!

Hello there, @kitoq.

 

At this time, the option to change the language to Spanish is unavailable in QuickBooks.

 

However, you can use the language settings of the browser to edit the one you're currently using. Let me guide you how:

  1. At the upper-right of the opened browser, click the vertically lined dots
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Advanced and then Languages
  4. From the Language drop-down, click Add languages
  5. Select the language we'll want to use. Then, click Add
  6. Click the three vertical dots beside the language.
  7. Check the Display Goggle Chrome in this language box. 

I'll personally send this option to our engineers so we'll have the option to change languages within QuickBooks. 

 

Then in case you need to learn some tips or best practices in managing your QBO account, you can always drop by into our Help articles page anytime.

 

You're always welcome to post here anytime you need help. I'm happy to work with you. Have a great day!
