Multilingual Volunteer Opportunities (in Salesforce)

If your instance of HandsOn Connect offers more than one language on the public site, you can choose to translate your volunteer opportunity into additional languages.  

This article applies to create and editing opportunities in Salesforce.  If you are looking for information related to the Sharing Portal, please click here.

When your HOC instance is configured for multiple languages, you must set the languages where the Volunteer Opportunity should appear in searches on your Public Site.

For example, when the Volunteer Opportunity has the default language English, and you need to display the Opportunity in another language, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to Salesforce.
  2. Go to the Volunteer Opportunity record.
  3. In Available Languages select all languages that you need to display the Opportunity.
  4. Click on Save.
  5. Then go to Manage Language.
  6. Add the translations for each language.
  7. Save the changes.
  8. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes for the search index to update.

If your site supports more than one language you will see multiple tabs for language when you create or edit a volunteer opportunity:

Depending on your page layout, the Available Languages and Primary Language may be in another place on the page or hidden.
