You can set an embed users locale by adding it to the user_atttributes parameter of the url. Example;

user_attributes { "locale" : "fr_FR" }

If you are not seeing these being applied for an embed user;

  • Make sure that you are using the correct and full local name from this doc https://docs.looker.com/admin-options/tutorials/localizing-looker . For example if you use "de" instead of "de_DE" for german this wont translate yourcontent.
  • You can check what locale has been set for an embed user also by sudoing as them, and clicking on the account page from the top right of the instance.

Just CTRL+F for "locale" and you will see the current setting for that user. This might be coming from the instances locale in the Admin> Localisation page, or from the SSO embed link itself.
