Once activated, there will be a globe icon on the guest view HOME tab to choose the language for the guide to be translated into.

2. Add your own translated text with the Multi-Language option

You can create your guide in other languages by entering your own translation for the text. Currently we support Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Norwegian, Finnish, Russian, Greek, Welsh, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Bulgarian and Romanian. 

When using the Multi-Language option, you just need to add your own translated text to your Categories, Sub-categories and Topics.Touch Stay automatically translates navigation elements, such as the “Get Started” button and map tab filters.
