    1. Hello Paulo, thank you for asking. For our video lessons, if you go to the Settings (cogwheel), then subtitles, you can change the language. You may have to select English first, then go back to the same setting and there should now be the option for auto-translate in a variety of languages.

      We also recently launched IBKR Podcasts in Spanish. Feel free to check it out here: https://ibkrcampus.com/category/podcasts/ibkr-podcasts-es/
