Codejig ERP supports a number of different languages, so you can easily change the application language. The selection of available languages depends on specific localizations implemented for individual counties. As a rule, all official languages of a particular country together with the English language are available in the application. When you change the application language, all interface elements, including messages, buttons, menu items, commands and field names are translated in a selected language. And yet, the content of data files defined by users is not translated unless it has been entered in several languages.
After selecting a specific application language, all textual information you provide in fields will be linked to the selected language. When you switch to another language, this information will be displayed in a language in which it was originally entered but a language symbol will appear next to the entered values to indicate their language.
However, if your users/employees are located in different countries or speak different languages, it is useful to translate not only the interface elements, but also data you enter in the application to maintain data files in all required languages.
So, Codejig ERP enables you to provide information in several languages. Multilingual functionality is applicable only to string fields, as numbers or dates do not need translation.
For example, a Name field and a Used to field are string fields that you usually wish to translate.
However, some string fields do not support multilingual functionality and are not translatable. For instance, an Email field and a Phone number field are string fields, but you cannot translate data you enter into them because emails and phone numbers are represented identically across different languages.
To translate content in Codejig ERP
1. Access a string field that needs translation, and click the Globe icon at the right edge of the field.
The translation dialog box opens. It includes fields for entering translations for each supported language. The field representing the current system language which has been available for entering text values before opening the dialog box comes first.
Rest a mouse pointer on the ScreenTip icon to see how to navigate or close the dialog box.
2. Add translations for all required languages.
You can also edit values entered into the field standing for the current system language.
3. To close the translation dialog box, click the Minimize button / press Enter or Esc.
4. Provide translations for other fields within a data file, if necessary.
5. Save the data file containing the field to save all translations provided.
If there is not the Globe icon at the right edge of a string field, it means that the field is not translatable.
