Setting Editor UI Language Documentation

CKEditor is translated into over 60 languages and by default, it is displayed in the user's language (as set in the browser or operating system settings). Additionally, the developer can also influence the choice of the editor UI language by using one of the following configuration options:

The editor example below is combined with an additional script that pulls the language list from the languages.js file (which includes a list of all supported editor localizations) and creates a drop-down list that can be used to change the UI language. Please note that this script is not necessary to add localizations to your CKEditor instance — in its default configuration CKEditor will always adjust the UI language to user's preferences. Refer to the Setting Editor User Interface Language article to learn more about this feature.

Check the Creating Multilingual Content sample to learn about setting text direction (LTR or RTL) and text part language for your content.
