You have always been able to send email campaigns in non-English languages with Campaign Monitor. We send in UTF-8 encoding, which supports the majority of character sets so every æ and ¿ renders fine. Signup forms, confirmation pages and the like are also fully customizable.
The only limitations were the forward to a friend and preference center pages, which had English labels. Today we have removed that last stumbling block with the release of several language options for use on those pages.
We’re launching with four new languages, French, German, Danish and Norwegian (thanks Stig!) and we’ve got a couple more on the way.
To select the language, just jump into the ‘client settings’ tab for each client. In the right hand column you’ll see the links to customize the forward to a friend and preference center pages. Pick the language from the drop down and you are done.
Don’t worry if your own language of choice is not listed, because we’ve built this to be extensible. If you’d like to help us (and other customers) by adding a translation, please get in touch and we can let you know what is needed.
Here’s what the forward to a friend looks like in Norwegian:
Thanks to everybody who has requested this feature, and thanks also to our Freshview intern Pete, who has made it happen.
