Changing the user interface language

You can change the language used in Vortex, for example on the tabs and buttons you use when you edit a web page.

To change the language used by Vortex:

  1. Open your web browser and go to the web page you wish to edit.
  2. Click the Log in link at the bottom right of the screen. Please note that if you are already logged in, the link to click will be Manage document, instead of Log in. If the web page is in Norwegian, the links will be Logg inn and Administrer dette dokumentet. 
  3. Log in using your UiO user name and password.
  4. Click the Language settings in the top right of the page, Språkinnstillinger if the web page is in Norwegian, and choose the language you wish to use. Available languages are English, Norsk bokmål and Norsk nynorsk.


Changing this language setting does not affect the language on the actual web page, only the elements you use when managing and editing a document. If you wish to change the language of the default elements on a web page in Vortex, you can do that on the About tab (Om tab).
