How will this idea be used?

WCA users in Brazil doesn't recognize that IBM has AI-powered on it marketing solutions. They don't feel comfortable to interact with Watson because it only "know" English. Ipiranga and other non-English speaker customers consider to use Watson when it know Portuguese.

    Thank you both for your feedback! Currently, a user may ask questions in other languages such as Portuguese and Spanish, but the Assistant is only able to respond in English.

    The team is researching the ability to support generating responses in different languages.

    I've tried to interact with simple Portuguese sentences and Watson didn't comprehend. Is it required to request anything via Support to enable Watson to understand sentences in Portuguese and Spanish?

    I'm sorry to hear the Assistant hasn't been able to understand your questions. The understanding of languages other than English is still a work in progress.

    There is no action required on your end to request further language support.
