Coming Soon: How can I set a preferred language for my class participants?

Only for Remind teachers whose organization currently has the preferred language translations feature turned on. If you're unsure, please contact your administrator.

The default preferred language for all Remind accounts is blank. To send a translated message, you must first make sure your class is linked to your organization, and then add a preferred language for the teachers, parents, and students in your class.
