Language and Locale

Administrators will use this section to adjust any language and locale settings, including time zone, location, support for multiple languages and translatable strings.

To access this section, click the Settings icon. Then expand the Configuration folder and click Language and Locale in the navigation pane. The settings will load in the content pane and the following tabs will be available:

Options

Use this tab to edit the following settings:

  • Locale for Currency - To specify the format in which currency is displayed for cost calculation reports, select the appropriate option from the list. By default, the locale is set to English (United States) ($1,000.00).
  • Default Time Zone - From the list, select the time zone SmarterTrack will use as the default. More often than not, this time zone should match your current location. However, it can be adjusted to account for offices in other geographic locations.

Supported Languages

With support for nearly 60 different languages, SmarterTrack makes it easy to communicate with customers on a global level. Setting up language support for SmarterTrack is a multi-step process. For detailed instructions, please refer to the KB article Set Up SmarterTrack to Support Multiple Languages.

The following columns are available in the content pane:

  • Checkbox - Use these boxes to select multiple languages. Languages must be selected before choosing an action from the toolbar.
  • Language - The language name and dialect, if available.
  • Locale - The language and the geographic location in which the language or dialect is used.
  • Default - Indicates if the selected language is the default language.
  • Enabled - Indicates whether support for the selected language has been enabled.
  • Language Pack Installed - Indicates whether the language pack has been installed into SmarterTrack.

The following options are available from the content pane toolbar:

  • New - Allows the administrator to designate a new supported language.
  • Edit - Allows the administrator to make changes to a supported language's settings.
  • Delete - Permanently deletes the selected supported language(s).

To edit the settings for a specific language, simply double-click the language. The supported language details will load in the content window.

Translatable Strings

Some phrases and words may not be available for translation through a specific language pack. When this happens, administrators can use translatable strings to define these phrases and words. For example, a U.S. company with customers in Spain may create a translatable string to translate the company's department names (Billing, Sales, etc.) into Spanish (Ventas, Facturacion, etc.)

The following columns are displayed when translatable strings have been added:

  • Token Name - The identifier for the translatable string. Note: Token names must begin and end with @@.
  • Description - A summary describing the purpose of the translatable string.
  • Status - Indicates whether the translatable string can be translated into the supported languages.

To edit the settings for a specific translatable string, simply double-click the translatable string. A modal window will display the following options:

  • Token Name - The identifier for the translatable string.
  • Description - A summary describing the purpose of the translatable string.
  • For each supported language that is configured, a field will be available for translation.
