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.)

To access the Translatable Strings section, click the settings icon. Then expand System Settings and Globalization and click Translatable Strings in the nagivation pane. A list of translatable strings will load in the content pane.

The following columns are available:

  • Translatable Strings - Use these boxes to select multiple languages. Languages must be selected before choosing an action from the toolbar.
  • 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.

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).
