Use Soundslice in multiple languages

Posted by Adrian Holovaty on March 28, 2019

Our music player is now available in 10 languages!

You might have already noticed this, because we soft-launched the feature a few months ago but hadn’t yet announced it. With any piece of music on Soundslice, the interface will use one of our 10 supported languages:

By default, the language is chosen based on your system settings. If you’d like to change it, you can open our player’s Settings menu and set the language explicitly.

Is your own language missing from our list of supported languages? We’d love to expand our list, and we could use your help. Contact us and let us know which language you can help translate.

We haven’t yet translated the rest of our site, including our notation editor, store or community area; our top priority was our music player, which is our core product. We hope to tackle the rest of the site in the future.

If you’re embedding the Soundslice player in your own website, our player will automatically choose the language based on your users’ language setting. Due to web browser restrictions with third-party cookies, the embedded player doesn’t display the language selector in Settings. But, you can manually specify the player’s language with the new lang URL parameter, documented here. For example, if your own user authentication system lets users specify a language, you can then easily pass that preference to Soundslice.
