Preferred Language in Contact

Which values can be used as preferred language to import contacts?

All I can find is that it's an enumeration type. But I cannot find any list of valid values.

Hi @RobbyVarel,

 

The fastest option would be to copy and paste them and then map them to the options from your database. HubSpot doesn't offer any validation before importing. (Don't shoot the messenger.)

I like your kind of humour.

But not not being able to obtain a list of all enumeration values, makes me cry!

I agree, this should be easier to obtain, @RobbyVarel.

Hi @RobbyVarel,

 

I'm not aware of a way to copy this list, unfortunately. You can however display all values by selecting "Show all" at the bottom:

How can I ever check if the values I want to import are correct?

I need to convert the values from my database into Hubspot-acceptable values.

A list of valid values is the least one can expect in the desription of enumerated types!

Hi @RobbyVarel,

 

You can check those values under Settings > Properties. Search for "preferred language", click on the property and you should see the values.

 

Both the Label and the Internal value should work when used in your import file:
