Video: Add bilingual labels to a map with expressions in Studio

No code

Learn how to use expressions for string and data operations in Mapbox Studio. In this example, we use expressions to add bilingual labels to a map. The same approach can be used to define logical, mathematical, or camera operations, formulaically, using expressions.

Set the default language

  • 0:13 - Go to Studio and create or open a map style.
  • 0:34 - Open the Place labels component and set the default language for all place labels.

Add a second language

  • 0:50 - Click a label on your map to access the layer options.
  • 0:57 - Note the existing expression in Text field.
  • 1:12 - Edit the expression to add a second language label.
  • 1:53 - Use the JSON editor to copy the full JSON expression to other layers.
