How to translate content using language macros



Choose a specific language macro to write your content (over 40 languages available). Just open the macro browser ("/") and start typing the language's name.

The app "Translations for Confluence" is about managing content in different languages, not about providing automatic translations.

Using language macros to translate content


  1. Navigate to a page that needs to be translated. Alternatively, create a new empty page to start from scratch.

  2. Open the macro browser by typing "/" and the beginning of the first language. Choose the desired language.

  3. Type your respective content into the language box. If you are working with existing text, simply drag your content into the language box. You may use any other macro within the language macro.


  4. Open the macro browser again ("/) and start typing another language. Choose the desired language.

  5. Type the translation of your content into the new language box.

  6. Repeat until all languages are covered.

  7. Save the page.

  • The content will now be displayed only in the language you have selected (see here for details). If you want to see the other languages to check if everything looks correct, you will have to use the language drop-down.

  • The language drop-down might not appear right after you publish the page. Please reload the page to make the drop-down appear.

  • It is not possible to translate the page titles on Confluence Cloud.
