You can read the connection between design and template here.

Letters as well as e-mails can be created with each template.

Recommendation for accounts with multiple recruitment languages

If you have used multiple recruitment languages in your account from the beginning, all Best Practice templates are automatically created in these languages.

If you change your account from monolingual to multilingual, use our Best Practice templates for an easy start. The correct placeholders in the respective languages are already stored there.
