Edit language and translation preferences

In “Preferences” you will find the options for configuring the vLex platform, including those related to language and translation.

1. Language Preferences

vLex allows you to choose the platform’s language. Log in to your account by clicking on the right-hand side of the screen, and select “Language Settings“.

Choose the language that you want to see the vLex platform in. In “Customize your interface”> “select your language” you will be able to choose the interface language.

Currently, the vLex platform is available in the following languages: Spanish, English, Italian, French, Portuguese and Catalan.


This option customizes the platform. The documents will still be in their original language (with the option to automatically translate them in to more than 10 different languages).

2. Translation Preferences

vLex has the option to perform translated searches and the option to translate documents. You can edit translation preferences to configure how translations work in vLex.

From the drop-down menu located at the top-right of vLex’s main interface, select “Language Settings

Here you can find out how to:

  • Choose whether you want the proactive translation that automatically translates the documents titles and contents.
  • Choose languages you do not want automatically translated. This option is useful if you understand a language and only want to translate documents appearing in other languages.
  • Choose your preferred language for machine translation.
  • Choose whether you want the system to show you parallel translation, in two columns, by default.
