Translation or Languages Help

Our worldwide brotherhood is truly a wonderful blessing! We believe all our friends, no matter where they live or what language they speak, should be able to quickly and easily schedule the Christian Life and Ministry meeting, Public Talks, JW Secretary and much, much more.

As evidence of this, JW Scheduler is currently available in 67 languages and the JWS Publisher App is currently available in 16 languages. This makes JW Scheduler one of the most widely translated programs in the world!

Selecting Languages

JW Scheduler allows you to run the program in one language, and produce schedules in another language. This is especially useful for language Groups or language learners.

For example, you can set your Program Language to English, but your Congregation Language as Chinese.

Another unique feature is that JW Scheduler allows you to set an Auxiliary Class as a ‘Foreign Language Group’. This allows the group to schedule their own Treasures Talk, Digging for Spiritual Gems and Congregation Bible Study.

Congregation Language

To set your Congregation Language, click Congregation > Congregation Information > Congregation Language

This will affect the language of the following:

  • Life and Ministry Meeting
  • Public Talks
  • Schedules
  • Printing
  • JWS Publisher app meeting part titles

After changing Congregation Language, you should close and re-open JW Scheduler.

  • Note: Your Congregation Language can be different to the JW Scheduler Program Language. For example, you can set JW Scheduler to be in English, but your congregation is Chinese.

Program Language

To set your Program Language, click Settings > Program Language

This will affect the language of the JW Scheduler program itself, i.e. the User Interface.

  • Note: This can be different to the JW Scheduler Program Language. For example, you can set JW Scheduler to be in English, but your congregation is Chinese.
