Preferences > Change Language

This feature allows you to choose the view in cPanel to 4 different languages, English, Spanish, German, Russian

There is a wide selection of other languages available if you prefer to use an alternative.

Note: When you change the interface’s language, the system sets a cookie in your browser that expires after one year.
You must perform this step each time that you log in to webmail from a new browser, whenever you delete cookies, and after the cookie expires.
There is also an option to change the log in interface locale for cPanel, WHM, or Webmail during the log in process, which will change the default language for the interface.

Changing The Language


To change your cPanel interface’s language, perform the following steps:

  • 1) Select the language that you wish to use from the Select a language menu.
  • 2) Click Change. The interface will refresh in the newly-selected language.
  • 3) You should now see the selected language

Note: If your browser’s Accept-Language header is set, the login interface will attempt to display the locale that corresponds to your browser setting. If the locale that the browser’s header requests is not available, the login interface will appear in English.

Supported languages

Note: We have deprecated and removed our legacy locales. To reinstate partial language support, use the files in our locale repository.
Your hosting provider can make them available.
To upload any language files found here, perform the steps in our Locale XML Upload documentation.

Important: Don’t see your language of choice? Take cPanel's Language Support Feedback Survey to let them know your preferences.
