Choosing a Language in Amazon QuickSight

You can choose the language that you want to use in the Amazon QuickSight user interface. This option is set separately for each individual user. The first time a user signs in, Amazon QuickSight detects and selects a suitable language. This choice is based on the user's browser preferences and interactions with localized AWS websites.

Amazon QuickSight supports the following languages:

  • English (en-US)

  • German (de-DE)

  • Spanish (es-ES)

  • French (fr-FR)

  • Italian (it-IT)

  • Portuguese (pt-BR)

  • Japanese (ja-JP)

  • Korean (ko-KR)

  • Simplified Chinese (zh-CN)

  • Traditional Chinese (zh-TW)

Choosing a language translates only user interface elements. It doesn't translate the following:

  • Amazon QuickSight reserved keywords

  • User input

  • Data

  • Date or number formats

  • ML Insights, suggested insights, or computations in narratives (including text)

Use the following procedure to change the language in the Amazon QuickSight interface.

  1. Choose your user profile icon at top right.

  2. To open the language options menu, choose the > symbol near the current language.

  3. Choose the language that you want to use.
