Horizzon distinguishes between the application language and the model language. The application language is the language of the Horizzon interface and is in English by default. Other languages available are Dutch, French, and German.

The model language is the language in which the content of a site or model package is presented in Horizzon. Which model languages will be available, depends on the languages that have been included in the model package in Enterprise Studio. Different languages can be set for the model package content in Horizzon and for each site based on this package or sites based on a project. Whether you are setting the language for a site or model package content depends on the location in Horizzon where you set the preferred language.

Changing the application language

  1. In the Horizzon toolbar, click your profile icon .

  2. Under Application language, select the language of your choice.

Changing the model language

The language of a model package or project in Enterprise Studio determines in which language it is presented in a site or model package in Horizzon. If the model package or project in Enterprise Studio contains more than one language, the default language of this model package or project determines in which language the site or model package content is initially presented in Horizzon. If desired, you can change the model language of the site or model package content.

Changing the model language of a site will affect the information shown in all views of that site. Changing the model language of a model package will affect the information shown on the model package's data policies and data entry pages.


Example of model language for model package content set to Dutch


When changing the model language for a site or model package content, it is changed just for you. Other users who view the same site or model package content will see it in its original language, unless they have changed the model language for themselves.

  1. Open the site or model package page for which you want to change the model language.
  2. In the Horizzon toolbar, click your profile icon .

  3. Under Model language, select the desired language. You can choose from the languages that are available in the model package or project.


The content of the site or data entry/data policies page in a model package automatically switches language. The selected language is saved; the next time you open the site or model package in a new Horizzon session, its content is shown in this language.
