Surpass supports many different test driver languages. When creating or scheduling a test, you can change the default language of the test driver. This affects the navigation buttons and any warning messages that might appear to candidates during the test.

IMPORTANT: Changing the test driver delivery language does not automatically translate item content. Item content must be changed manually for different languages.
