Miguel,
Are you saying that our native Spanish version of the Captive Web Portal page has incorrectly translated words, or incorrect grammar for Spanish, or something else?

Yes, the page has incorrectly translated words and incorrect grammar for Spanish.
For example in Login Page "Loguearse", this word doesn't exist in Spanish, a correct word could be "Acceder". 
And the "read and accept" phrase has incorrect grammar for Spanish.

Miguel,
I take all the blame for the messup. My apologies. If you can send email to me at mkouri (at) aerohive.com with suggested corrections then I will work to get those changes incorporated into the software version we are planning for release near the end of this year (intervening releases are already in flight and cannot be changed).

What about offering a CWP in an additional language that isn't one of the ones Aerohive provides? We would need our CWP to be in Finnish, but I don't see how that may be achieved satisfactorily.

Joe,
For the predefined CWPs we hard coded native representations. We polled our customer base for the most commonly-requested localizations and Finnish just didn't make the cut. There wasn't sufficient demand to justify the effort. Perhaps you can consider using an external CWP if you want it customized?

Thanks for your response, Mike. I have to admit I'm disappointed with Aerohive's included CWP functionality, so I've decided to use equivalent functionality on our FortiGate instead, which has a number of advantages compared to what our new AP230s have been able to manage (fast and reliable redirects; sensible, easy-to-use tracking who has accessed our guest network that shows the registered their email address alongside the device details; and it also works for wired connections to the guest VLAN).
