As part of our commitment to making OpenApply more accessible to schools in Greater China, we will shortly be releasing an option for Simplified Chinese on the parent interface.
How does it work?
If a school enables a second language interface in its settings, parents will be able to choose their preferred language when visiting the school’s OpenApply account.
Choosing Chinese allows parents to experience a Simplified Chinese version of the site. All areas of the system visible to parents will be available in Chinese, including:
- Navigation buttons
- School information
- Application forms
- Payment information
See how we are helping China schools rise above the competition by scheduling an online demonstration today!
What are the benefits?
- Attract more Applicants: With a parent interface fully in Chinese, you can draw in local parents who may have been less likely to apply in English.
- Improved Parent Experience: Local parents will feel more comfortable with the application process from step one. Instead of translating unfamiliar terms, parents can focus their attention on the application process.
- Save Time: By eliminating miscommunication due to language differences, admissions staff can spend more quality time getting to know prospective families.
To preview the new Chinese interface, please see the parent section of our demo account.
