Is Quickbooks available using a Japanese language interface?

Hi Michaelstanczak,

I'd like to share some informaiton about the language in Quickbooks Online (QBO).

The default language in QBO is English for all countries except for the following (available in Account and Settings):

  •     Hong Kong: English and Traditional Chinese offered 
  •     Mexico: Spanish offered
  •     France: English and French offered
  •     Brazil: English and Brazilian Portuguese
  •     Canada: English and French offered

In the meantime,  as a workaround, you can consider using the Google Translate plug-in in Google Chrome. In Google Translate, you can select from multiple languages to translate the QuickBooks Online interface.

Follow these steps to install the Google Translate plug-in:

  1. With your Google Chrome browser open, select Chrome, then Preferences.
  2. Select Advanced, and under Languages, select Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language you read.
  3. Close the setting tab and sign in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  4. Right-click on the homepage, and then select Translate to English. 
  5. You will see a pop-up under the Google Translate icon appear at the end of the address bar; select the icon.
  6. On the pop-up Translate this page, select  Options, and then Change languages.
  7. In the Translation Language drop-down, select the language you want to translate QuickBooks to, select Always translate, and then Done.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. I'll be happy to lend a hand.

Are there any plans to provide a Japanese language interface in the future?

Hello @michaelstanczak,


As of the moment, the Japanese Language interface is not yet available in QuickBooks. And we're unable to provide the exact turnaround time as to when it will be included in any of the coming updates.


With this, let's consider letting our product developers know about your request by following the steps below:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Under PROFILE, select Feedback.
  3. Enter a few words describing your request.
  4. Click Next.

Additionally, I've also included this reference for a compilation of articles you can use while working with us: Account Management for QuickBooks Online.


If there's anything else that I can help you with, please let me know in the comments below. I'll be here to lend a hand.

@Japan user 

Utilize an additional app as a workaround to integrate with your QBO for the time being. e.g utilize a project management/CRM app with the time tracker feature for your internal team, create an estimate/invoice for your local customers.
