Many international companies have employees who do speak very different languages. In some cases they can not commit to 1 language (like english). It is great that Pipedrive supports 17 different languages, but you should be able to name the custom fields as well according to the language settings of a user.

    Thanks @Bernd Auer that's indeed one of the things that doesn't get translated now along with Pipelines and stages. I've passed it along to our team!

    Hi Mike,

    Are there any updates regarding multi language support for the custom fields?

    Best regards,

    Lars

    Unfortunately not Lars :( I'm gonna poke some people so they can hopefully take it into consideration but at the moment it's not in the near term plans.

    Dear Pipedrive Team, a lot of companies are still waiting for this feature which is standard in other CRM Systems. What are your plans in providing different languages for custom fields?

    Thanks for your response!

    Agreed... the stuggle is real - it's a potential dealbreaker not to be able to communicate with clients/coworkers in native languages. Hope it's on the drawing board, because i'd hate to see pipedrive go as a consequence.


    Keep up the excellent work @Mike van der Valk and team pipedrive!

    These days, each and every part of any software has to be multilingual.

    Hi @Bernd Auer , having different languages for custom fields according to user language settings is not part of the plans for the immediate future. But the product team continues to keep an eye on the number of comments and upvotes on this request, and it may be something they can pick up further in the future.

    Hi @Manuel Oliveira,

    just had a meeting with a HVC prospect. For them this is a showstopper. So they will not upvote it because they are not a member of this community but pick another CRM. The good thing: Hubspot is not able to cover this either. They already had a look at it ;-)

    The message is: This feature is not for so much interesting for existing Pipedrive customers rather for new customers. And not for the 3 people accounts, but for the international, 50+ users.

    That is very interesting, thanks @Bernd Auer . I will be sure to check with our researchers if they have any data on this matter.
