Camtasia Player in user language

Hi

It would be important that the user should see the navigation of the player in the user language. As example, when I created the player file in german, but I have also a caption in Chinese – a Chinese user would never find the correct settings... So I think it would be very very important to add a solution, that the navigation change to users language (ex. user language detect by browser).
Also important: It should be possible to set the correct language of captions by using a link. As example when I open the English version of my website, I set a link or settings of player, that it open the captions directly in English.

Not sure if that can or would be accomplished as I am not a Programmer or anything. It sounds like a nice option to have if it could be made to work that way. But, how many users would really use that option is the question and in what ways they would use it and why.

I would love to see more feedback on this subject as to how and why the users would want and put to use this option. Thanks for sharing your Idea. Have a great day/night.

It is more then only a nice option. Without this option the complete language change in the player don't make any sense.

Hi Maka,

Thanks for the feedback.  We currently only have Smart Player translated in English, German, Japanese, French and Spanish.  If we did auto detect browser language we'd be limited to the languages that we support.

I'll kick around your suggest on auto set caption language from a URL too.
