With the New Drive, not only can you now set your overall language, but you can also include a subset of languages that you understand. This is a great tool for students taking foreign language classes. A first year Spanish student, for example, can easily get confused when their menus switch to Spanish as a result of changing the primary language in Drive. That’s no longer an issue if Spanish is added as an additional language rather than the primary one!
The addition of more languages is easy. While in the New Drive, click on Settings (the gear shaped icon in the top right corner) and then select “Settings:”
Under “General” select Change language settings next to “Language:”
Next, click on Selectlanguages next to “Other languages you understand.”
Once the pop-up window appears, check the box(es) next to all language(s) that you understand.
By doing this, you enable the features of the other languages without changing the overall language of Google Drive. It’s a great new feature to support language students in Drive!
CGHS got 51 new MacBook Airs this year, and those of us in the library are in the process of setting them up and rolling them out. Don't worry, we didn't throw them all away. No Airs were harmed in the making of this blog post.
