How to Change the Deputy Android App Language

Please note: The following instructions are correct for Samsung handsets running Android 7.0. While the instructions may vary based on your handset and Android version, the steps below can be followed loosely for your own device.

To begin, swipe down from the top of your screen to bring up the notification bar, then tap the gear icon to bring up the phone's settings menu.

From here, scroll down and tap 'General management'. A non-Samsung device may have this labeled differently.

Tap 'Language and input'.

Now tap 'Language'.

Now tap 'Add language'.

In the menu that appears, select one of the nine supported languages. In this example, we'll select Spanish/Espanol.

After selecting your language, you will be redirected to the language page. To get Deputy to display in the selected language, click 'Edit' in the top right-hand corner.

After tapping 'Edit' you will see the list change to the following:

Now tap and hold the language you would like to use and drag it to the top of the list. Your list should look like the following:

Now press the Home button/close the Settings menu and open up the Deputy app. You'll notice that the app has changed to the newly selected language.

Note that if you have entered any data in English, it will appear as such, including business and location names, and employee names.
