In CustomCollegePlan students and/or parents are able to activate the Language Translator so they may read the contents of the Student profile in their language of choice. This is a great feature to use with international Students whose parents may not be as fluent or comfortable in English as are their children. The language selected will be viewable on all pages of the profile. Google Language Translator translates only text and not images or the text within an image. For example the Student may continue to read and correspond in English and the parent may activate the translator in their preferred language when viewing the Student's profile and see all of the content in that language. You, as the counselor, will see content from the student within CollegePlannerPro in the language they've entered it (Most likely English, unless you communicate differently).
How Students and/or Parents may change the preferred language
- Log on to CustomCollegePlan
- While on any page of the Student Profile, click on the arrow next to "Select Language" at the bottom right-hand side of the page
- Click on the language you want to view the profile in
- All text will be translated with the exception of the text within a graphic/image
The translation and language selection is only for the duration of the current login session. The Language Translator needs to be selected by each individual accessing the CustomCollegePlan account. You can not set the language for the student or parents.
