The manifest file creation page, CreateManifest.html, is also localized and may be used in your browser language, if set to one of the languages supported by Smart View.

In the Create Manifest File page, use the check boxes under "Supported Languages" to select up to 10 languages to include in your deployment:

Supported Languages option listing available languages

Note that there is currently a limit of 10 languages allowed for each centralized deployment. If your users require more than 10 languages, then you must create another manifest file with the required languages and perform a second centralized deployment. See Working with Multiple Manifest Files for more information.


In the "Supported Languages" option:

  • The limit of 10 languages applies even if you plan to only sideload a manifest file.
  • English is always selected by default, even in non-English environments and locales.

Once deployed, all supported localized languages are available to be selected by Smart View users.

On the Mac, users change the locale of their Mac system to use a localized version of Smart View (Mac and Browser). On the Chrome browser, users change the language preference of Office 365. Users can change languages to any supported language at any time. For example, a user may change from English to French, and then later, change from French to Simplified Chinese. There is no limit on changing the interface language.
