Creating a profile in another language is important when adding language to LinkedIn. You can use a different version of your LinkedIn account in a different language to make it easier for recruiters, professionals, and companies to locate you in other countries.
If one creates a LinkedIn profile in English, people who use the social network in that language will see the English version. If they use another language, they will see it if available.
This feature can show your profile to companies in other countries and reinforce your mastery of other languages. See how it works!

The platform also allows you to edit the “Summary,” “Academic Education,” and “Experience” sections. Your saved skills are automatically adapted when you create a secondary profile in another language.
You need to publish your posts manually in each language in the secondary profile. You cannot choose which language people will view your account – this is determined by the device they use.
