Is your organization working in an international, multilingual context? Want to be able to automatically translate the roles and circles in your native language? Here's a quick article to get your way around the Translation add-on.
The Translation add-on allows you to automatically translate your organization's content with one click into your preferred language(s).
Translating your organization's role and circles into multiple languages will maximize the number of people who understand the role as a whole and improve the clarity on Purpose, Domains, Accountabilities and Policies.

The automatic translations can be manually reviewed by translators of your choice who are part of your organization, thus ensuring the quality and relevance of the content.
