What Languages Are Supported For Instructors Teaching on Udemy?
Udemy is localized in Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Turkish, but you are welcome to create a course in any language.
Changing the course language will affect how your course is discovered on Udemy, and your course will appear with other courses taught in the same language.
Udemy's mission is to improve lives through learning around the globe, and as a result, nearly all languages can be selected as the home language for a Udemy course. This article outlines how you can select a language for your course, and includes information on which languages are supported for accounts and in our Help Center.
How to select your course language
Most world languages are selectable as the home language for a Udemy course you teach, and you are welcome to create a course in any available one you wish. The language options for Udemy accounts, however, include German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Turkish, Dutch, Polish, Chinese, Indonesian, and Thai (see the note below regarding courses taught in languages that are not yet supported for Udemy accounts).
You can set or change the language of your course by following the instructions below. Please note that changing the course language will affect how your course is discovered on Udemy, since our keyword search and categories contain language filters.
On the course management page, click Course Landing Page on the left hand side

Note about courses taught in languages not available for Udemy account languages
If your course is in a language that's different from the language options for accounts (see list above), certain generic course elements like the navigation buttons in the course, the prompts for students to leave a review, and the section headers on the course sales page, will not be localized to match the teaching material you supply for the course. All the material that you are prompted to enter for the course, including the lectures themselves, lecture titles, additional resources you provide students, and the elements of the course landing page that you are prompted to enter will be localized.
Help Center language settings
Udemy's Help Center (support.udemy.com) for students and instructors can be viewed in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish. If the account language is set to one of our other language options for Udemy.com, then the Help Center will appear in English.
