The grid, presented below, outlines the Linux Foundation exams where Exam objectives (i.e. exam tasks) are available in English, Simplified Chinese, and/or Japanese. When an exam is launched, the exam objectives (i.e. exam tasks) will default to the preferred language setting detected in the Candidate’s browser. If the preferred language is not available for that exam then the exam objectives default to English. If exam objectives are available in multiple languages, the candidate may switch between available languages during the exam by clicking on the “Language Control Dropdown List” in the Content Panel of the exam console.
