Together with our community of translators, we’re excited to announce that you can now use Proton VPN in Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Spanish, and Portuguese. As part of our mission to make privacy tools accessible to everyone, we’re working to deliver Proton apps to more people in their native language.

You can start using these languages immediately in the latest version of the Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows apps. We’re also closer to releasing language support for the Proton VPN website, and we’ll post further updates as more languages become available on more apps.

How to access Proton VPN in your language

If you are an existing Proton VPN user:

Update to the latest version of the app to switch to one of these six languages. MacOS and Windows users will get a notification asking them to update, while iOS systems will automatically update Proton VPN.

If you are using MacOS, you can switch between languages in System Preferences. Select Language & Region, click on Apps and select Proton VPN and your preferred language. 

On iOS, go to your system Settings and select Proton VPN. You can then choose your preferred language.

Windows and Android don’t allow you to choose a language in Proton VPN settings. It will display the app only in the system language. Here’s a guide on how to change your Windows system language. If you are using an Android device, you can change your system language by going to Settings, selecting System, and then navigating to Languages & Input. 

If you are a new user:

Proton VPN will detect whether your operating system is set to one of the languages on this list. If it is, your app will automatically default to that language. Otherwise, Proton VPN will be in English.

Bringing privacy and Internet freedom to everyone, everywhere 

Our mission is to make the Internet safer for everyone, no matter where you are or what language you speak. 

Proton VPN breaks down barriers by routing your web traffic through an encrypted tunnel. This helps keep you safe from government and corporate surveillance while liberating censored or blocked information online. 

Making Proton VPN available to as many people as possible in their native language is an important part of this effort, and we couldn’t have done this without the help of our community of translators. By removing language barriers, the Proton community is making it easier to stay connected.

Language support is especially important in places where Internet freedom is often restricted, such as Iran, Russia, and China. Over the next several months, we are prioritizing translation for these languages and others — and we’re providing alternative ways to download Proton VPN in the event our website is blocked

In the coming months, we will increase the number of available servers across the globe, giving you faster speeds and better stability in countries with low bandwidth. And our engineers are also working on further security and anti-censorship features. 

Thank you for supporting our mission.

  3. Mihai-Alex

    You,insufficient representatives of Proton,
    stop humiliating people and yourself and announce the translation languages.
    Don’t play games to the detriment of the user.

  4. Ben Wolford

    We continue to release Proton in more languages, and as we scale up our localization team we will be able to do this faster. Thank you for your patience.

  5. Mihai

    I know I’m not going to get a clear answer,but what to do,someone has to ask.

  6. Jahavir

    CybedGhost Vpn’yi seçin,Türkçeye çevrildi,Proton’dan çok daha iyi

  7. Eric

    Are you planning to translate your app into Basque, Urdu, Catalan, Persian, Turkish, Lithuanian and Russian?
    Here you have not yet translated your app into European languages or even to European Union languages.
    Are you kidding?
    What sales will you make in Persian, Urdu, Lithuanian, Turkish …? Nothing.
    Are the comments true? They are obviously fake.
    You have lost control, dignity and appreciation of many people.

  8. Eric Newton

    Are you really working hard on expanding the number of available languages?
    It’s unbelievable how hard you work.
    Please,offer next translation to Kurdish and Armenian.

  14. Peter Øberg Jensen

    I suppose that the VPN client “talks” English? Is there any VPN servers in Scandinavia?

    Yes we have VPN servers in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, as well as Iceland and Finland.
    You can see where all our VPN servers are here:

  26. Chris

    I am an existing ProtonVPN(Windows) and ProtonMail(Windows and Android) user.
    Are you planning to translate these two applications into Greek?
    I don’t mean when you will do that but if you intend to do that.
    Please don’t give me an ambiguous and vague but a clear answer,if you want,as a person in charge in this area.

  27. Jan

    LOL. U serious?

    I dont think ProtonVPN has the resources nor the will to make and maintain translations for every single tiny language of the world. There are entire nations who don’t have their localised versions, no translation for Swedish, Russian, Greek, Romanian, Arabic, Farsi, etc, etc, etc… And do you really expect them to invest efforts in making a Basque translation? And what next, Nahuatl, Guarani, Quechua, or other languages in non hispanic countries, like Sardinian, Corsican, Andorran, Welsh, Neapolitan, Sami? That’s ridiculous, all of you basques speak Spanish or French natively, like all Mexicans speak Spanish and all Quebecois Speak French. Let ProtonVPN crew work in making their service better and better each day and do not annoy them with insignificant “improvements”, that after all are totally unnecessary.

  28. JK

    Offer translation to one Central European language.

  29. Roxana Zega

    Hi JK,

    We are working hard on expanding the number of available languages.


  30. Roxana Zega

    Hi Christos,

    We’re very happy to hear that our users are excited about getting ProtonVPN in their native language – our mission is to make privacy tools accessible to everyone. We translate our apps gradually, based on the number of users we have. We have, of course, included Greek on our list of languages and we hope to start working on this soon.

    Thank you!

  31. Larry
