Hello great workers at outlook app.
Since the last update to the wonderful app, my app language changed to the same as my iPhone settings.
Please add feature of changing the language to what ever I want regardless the iPhone setting
I like my iPhone to be Hebrew because my contacts are in Hebrew
But I would like to keep other apps in English
Looking forward to a update by your respected working people
Thank you and have a great one
Currently, Outlook for iOS uses the system language (e.g. English or Hindi), and the same is used for determining how replies are sent (e.g. the original email’s From, Subject and date fields maybe displayed in the system language, e.g. विषय).
However, there are times I want Outlook to use English even if my system language is Hindi, because the recipients usually only understand English.
Hence, having a setting that lets me choose Outlook language independent of the iOS language will be very helpful.

Needed for the job.
I would like to have a switch button inside APP to choose language rather than follow system setting. Because I don’t want mix my work and life, thanks.
Someone changed my language to Japanese I’m so hacked on3 accts
Hi, my language change from English to Spanish. How to change it back? Pls. Advise.
There is a language translation feature for outlook web which is very useful for foreign language emails (eg chinese/Japanese). Any chance for this feature to be included in the iOS version too?
My language has changed from English to Catalan and there’s no way to change it in the app? Please add a way to change it back.

I use multiple languages in most of my correspondence and I have found no way to switch dictionaries. Both Outlook and Word seem to only work in the “installed” language.

I’d like to be able to change the language on this app
Possibility to change the app language for users not using iPhone set to English language - better Siri functions as well with this
The translator add-in only works for messages sent to @outlook.com addresses. I have taken out an office subscription partly for this translation feature, but my main email addresses are not @outlook.com, and I’m not going to switch emails. Please extend the translation ability to all email accounts linked to the outlook account. At the moment there doesn’t seem to be a good option for this, but I’ll switch if I can find one.
Enable outlook to have a different language than iPhone general settings
We need download English version in Apple Store China market. Or we can choose language in settings.
Polish should be fully added.
The ability to change the language of the account would be a huge help. Let’s say you lived in Germany and made your account a German account but now you live in the US and you are comfortable with English. You would like to change your account to an English account right? Well you can’t. With this feature you have the ability to learn new languages and also feel comfortable with your account. If we add this feature people should be able to download their requested language or languages, and be able to change it at any time. Hope this feature files through this app.
Allow multi language or an option to select a different language from the phone OS.
Being stuck with the phone OS language is frustrating.
There is no switcher, the default setting is with IOS language.
Please add a language switcher to select languages independently with Phone
Do not use the system language by default, let users choose the language of this app, specially when replying or answering an email. (Stuffs like: from, to, date, subject... With language options!)
For languages that require character conversion, such as Japanese, if the automatic search function works when you enter alphabets, you may not be able to convert them well.
It should allow the app to be set to a different language other than what the phones language is set up to
