VolunteerHub uses a modern approach to language support, leveraging the browser's built-in translation technology to switch the displayed page to your preferred language.  This is helpful because it not only translates text within textboxes, but also page elements such as dropdown filters and the 'Sign Up' button.

Interaction with an organization doesn't stop with the VolunteerHub website; this solution also affects correspondence.  Utilizing browser-based translating, emails from VolunteerHub viewed within a browser are also translated into other languages.
