Organisations around the world have been met with unprecedented challenges – from managing economic, social and health crises to pivoting to a distributed hiring and working culture. This quick and agile adaptation to working remotely indicates a shifting mindset for both employers and candidates: companies and employees don’t need to be constrained by specific locations. Internationalisation and the ability to adapt to different working styles, locations and languages have never been more important.

As a result, one of our top priorities is to ensure that our customers are able to use Greenhouse in their native language, to make hiring and interviewing candidates around the world an easier and more seamless process.

How the Translated Interviewer Experience feature can help

Create a seamless experience for non-English speaking interviewers

As we move toward globalising Greenhouse and becoming an even more inclusive product, we want to ensure that recruiting teams and hiring managers are able to fill out their scorecards and refer candidates to roles in their native languages. We are proud to be able to offer the interviewer experience in four more languages: German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

That means recruiters and interviewers can now interact in their native language with all navigation buttons and the following most used Greenhouse pages:

  • Account settings
  • My dashboard
  • Add a candidate
  • Add a referral
  • All jobs
  • All candidates
  • Candidate profile
  • Scorecard
  • Interview kit

Additionally, to allow customers to display their open roles in their native languages, job boards are now available in these 19 languages:

  • Chinese (simplified)
  • Chinese (traditional)
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Tajik
  • Thai

Reduce time spent on training teams in a non-native language

Sometimes things can get lost in translation. But now, enabled with the Translated Interviewer Experience feature, hiring teams can spend less time training employees in a non-native language, and focus on what really matters. Greenhouse product features and processes can quickly resonate, helping users become best equipped to use the software, and creating a more seamless onboarding experience for all.

Overall, this new feature will help improve candidate, new hire and hiring manager experiences across the board, and across the sea. We’re so excited to be bringing diverse voices closer together.
