This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.
- Use for making it possible to choose one or more options from a limited number of options.
- Use for “accepting terms of service” and similar functionality.
- Use in forms to toggle something on or off.
- Avoid using when you have more than 10 options to choose from.

Content guidelines #
Checkbox labels should be clear, accurate and predictable. It should be possible for the user to understand what they are selecting:
When writing checkbox labels, always write them in sentence case, not title case. The first word should be capitalized and the rest lowercase (unless a proper noun):
Avoid ending in punctuation if it’s a single sentence, word, or a fragment:
Do not use commas or semicolons at the end of each line
Nord provides a lightweight solution for localizing its components. Not all components need localizing, as for the most part snippets of text are set per instance. For full localization guidelines, please see Localization documentation.
