Procore

What dictionaries and languages are available in the Procore web application?

Answer

The Procore web application's default language is United States English. During the implementation process, your company's Procore Administrator can work with Procore and submit a request to enable one (1) of the available language dictionaries on your company's Procore account. This setting becomes your company's default setting for Procore's Company level tools and all new projects created in your company's Procore account. 

 Important
  • The language setting in your company's Procore account is set up by Procore as specified by your company's Procore Administrator. Typically, this setting is enabled during the implementation process. This language your administrator chooses is used to create all new projects, unless:
    • A user with 'Admin' level permissions on the Project Admin tool requested to change the language setting on a Procore project. To submit a language change request for a project, send an email to your Procore point of contact or support@procore.com. This setting can only be changed by Procore.
    • Your team has created a new project that is based on a project template that uses a different language setting. See What is a Project Template?

Your choices are detailed in the tables below:

Available Point-of-View Dictionaries (United States English Only)

The table below details Procore's US English-only Point-of-View dictionaries. These dictionaries are used when Procore clients want to change the point-of-view of the Procore web application to fit the specific use case of their company. The POV in Procore can be changed to suit General Contractors, Owners, and Specialty Contractors. 

 Notes
  • If you implement one of Procore's point-of-view dictionaries at the company level, Procore recommends informing your users that changing the dictionary settings on a project or at the user level will override the company-level setting.
  • For best results, always set the Project Dictionary and User Dictionary settings  to None.  See Can I change the language of my Company, Project, or User in Procore?
