Dropbox dropin chooser api user interface language localization / internationalization

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

Can the Dropbox Chooser API display its user interface in languages other than English?

I mean: the text button that is inserted in my website, and any message that are displayed by the javascript from: https://www.dropbox.com/static/api/2/dropins.js

I see no mention of internationalization in the API documentation. The browser language settings do not appear to have an influence. The Dropbox account language setting neither.

In other words, it seems to me the Dropbox Chooser widget does not have any multilingual support. I find this very surprising since Dropbox itself supports many languages.

Thank you.

The Dropbox Chooser should automatically use the language set for the user in the user's account settings without any configuration from the app. This seems to be working for me:

Is this not working for you?

I need to clarify.

I am asking about translation of the Chooser Widget itself, the little button that Dropbox inserts into my web page.

I say "user interface", because that includes more than the button text itself. A quick look in the source code shows there several other natural language strings (mainly error messages, I guess) the need to be translated.

I am not asking about the dropbox.com user interface which is indeed controlled by the user settings.
