You can create Documents, Spreadsheets, and Presentations in over 40 languages. This includes the ability to enter special characters (via keyboard, insert symbols, import, or copy/paste), translate dates, comment, export, and apply international date, currency, and value formats. In addition, several languages support spell check.
Date & value translation
Workiva can translate words in dates (like "October"), values with units (like "millions"), and numbers as words (like "two hundred fourteen") for supported languages. This is especially powerful when linking values and dates across documents in multiple languages.
For example, a central English Spreadsheet with a source cell “December 31, 2020” becomes “31 diciembre 2020” in Spanish, “31. Dezember 2020” in German, and “31 décembre 2020” in French when linked to corresponding documents. All future updates to that source link are reflected in each destination link’s language.
