Greetings from pixiv.
Starting from November 9, you can search for novels by their language on the mobile and desktop versions of pixiv. To commemorate the release, we are holding the "Hot Taiwan Taste 2" contest for novels in traditional Chinese.
About the "Search by language" feature
You can now filter works by language in the novels' search options. Use this feature to find novels in your language of choice more quickly and easily.
For more information on how to search by language, please see the Help
You can set a novel's language when you submit your work. The language can be detected automatically or manually set to 23 different languages.
The results of the automatic detection of previously submitted novels are registered in the "Work language" section.
For more information on how to set a language for your work, please see the Help
In the future, we plan to extend the "Search by language" feature to manga works as well.
