You will need to update the text, as appropriate for your operations as discussed in the FAQ titled: How do I customize the text on eCenter Direct?. Furthermore, you may also want to update the email templates used by each language.

It is important to note that if a client on eCenter Direct selects one language or another, then also all emails sent to that client (and to that client's counselor) will be sent in the same language. In other words, if client X selects "Spanish" as their perferred language on eCenter Direct, then the email messages generated by eCenter Direct to that client and that client's counselor will also be sent in Spanish.
