What you need to know

  • Popular knowledge management and note-taking app Notion now supports French.
  • Notion says that support for French is currently only available as a beta feature.
  • Any issues should be reported to Notion so that they can be fixed and improved.

Notion is a hugely popular knowledge management app but it's been hamstrung by one big problem that specifically impacted people in France. Specifically, the app couldn't speak the language — but now it can!

In a move first announced via Twitter, Notion now supports the French language fully which means everything can now be configured with the language front and center. That includes menus, options, and everything else.

However, Notion does say that this feature change is currently a beta which means that some of the translations could be a little hit and miss. If that's the case and you notice something amiss, get in touch with the folks at Notion so they can put it right. There has been no public statement on when that beta tag will be removed, either.

Starting now, French language is supported in beta 🇫🇷 To change your language, go to Settings & Members → Language & region.
