What is the language of my robot

  • English and
  • your local language (or the second language you have asked for) among available languages.

English is his default or “native” language.

It means that if for any technical reason he is not able to find a word or a sentence in the current language, NAO will automatically switch to English.

Preferred Language

You can define a language as his preferred or configured language.
