How to Configure a Dynamics 365 Portal with Multiple Languages – Part 1

Your Business is Not Confined to One Location and One Language.

Thankfully, it’s easy to configure a Dynamics 365 portal with multiple languages to serve your customers or work with partners around the world. This blog shows you how to configure a Dynamics 365 portal in English and French, step by step. The great part is that everything can be managed in a single content hierarchy, meaning you don’t have to create forms for each language in CRM. By importing the Translation Package and configuring the Web Page and its localized content on the portal, you can easily display content in multiple languages.
