Internationalization

Last modified by superadmin on 24.01.2017

Forms support internationalization and can be translated into multiple languages.

The form can be edited separately for each language. When there is no translation available for a certain language, the default language is used.

Click on the language bar to the top left and select the language you would like to edit.

When you select any language other than the default language, only the properties of each form field that can be translated appear in the options panel on the right-hand side of the Xima® Formcycle Designer.

All other non-localizable properties such as whether a field is a required field or whether it is visible are available only for the default language.

Default language (fallback)

The default language is the language the form was originally created for. When no translation exists for a certain language, the default language will be used.

Opening a form in a particular language version

When opening a form, the system first checks whether there is an appropriate language version of the form for the default language of the operating system or browser and displays the form in that language To force a certain language version, specify the desired language as the URL parameter lang.

URL parameter for German

The following example illustrates how to open a form with the ID 150 in German. http://domain/formcycle/form/provide/150?lang=de

Deleting values

When you do not want to show a help message for a certain language, you can enter (empty) as the help text. This will remove the help icon and no help message will appear.
