Live Transcription transcribing wrong language


Hi, I'm trying to host a session in french with live transcriptions. I have them on and working in English, but even when I speak French they still try to find English words. How can I switch the languages? I've already switched my zoom app language...

Translation transcription is not available at this point.  You can assign a person for Language translation (audio) or get a person to write closed captions in French.  


Is this still the case? I am  looking  for a transcript in German. 

Is this somehow possible? Many thanks in advance.

Hi @WolfgangO_Sbg 

Zoom is rolling out live transcription support for other languages this month, so you will be able to generate captions directly auf Deutsch!

Check your web settings for Automated captions and see if you have the other languages available for your account.
