06 Nov 2019: Unsupported languages will now default to English. This update is available for all Canvas Roles.

When an unsupported language is set as the chosen language within Canvas, Turnitin will now default the Turnitin interface to English. A bug had changed this behaviour for users who had Icelandic set as their language on Canvas, by showing Swedish in the Turnitin interface. All languages will now default to English when an unsupported language is used.
