Changing language

There are two language options that you can adjust on Wattpad. 

Story language: This changes the language of the stories that are found in search results or recommended for you to read. It will not change the language that Wattpad is displayed in nor provide a translation of the story. Please note that we can't translate stories. The stories are written in the author's language of choice and it is the author's decision if they wish to write them in another language.

Display languageThis changes the language that Wattpad is displayed in. It will not change the language of the stories shown to you.
