Change languages in Todoist

When you set up an account, Todoist will automatically detect your system's default language. However, Todoist is available in a wide variety of languages (and we are always adding more), so should you wish to use it in a different language, here is how!


The Smart Date recognition language is automatically based on the selected language in Todoist. If the selected language isn't available yet, Smart Date recognition will default to English.
