Live webinar with Dr. Martin Laplante from IceFire Studios

With just a few subtle changes, SharePoint collaboration sites and other modern sites have changed from “unilingual by default” to “multilingual by default”, while encouraging you to have all users of all languages sharing the same tenant. Yet we are losing some multilingual features like Variations and the Machine Translation Service.

Join Martin Laplante, CEO at PointFire, and Microsoft MVP Liam Cleary, and learn how those changes require changes to governance of the localization of the UI and of the content. Some of the responsibility moves from regional offices to head office, and vice-versa compared to on-premise SharePoint. Also see some of the cool features that PointFire has been working on.

Key benefits:

· Know the multilingual features of SharePoint Online Modern sites
· Learn how to localize Hub site menus and megamenus
· Understand the impacts of the deprecation of Variations?
· Find some simple tricks like how to change your language
