Project languages

This tab is used to manage the characteristics of the project languages.
To add a new language into the project:
  1. Click the "Add" button.
  2. In the window that is displayed, select the different languages supported by the project.
    Notes:
    • If the requested language is not displayed in the list, you have the ability to select an additional language (the additional languages are displayed in the lower part of the window).
    • Versions 21 and later
      To name an additional language, click the requested language and type its name in the "Name of custom languages" area.

  3. Validate. The different languages are added into the list of project languages.
Notes:
  • The selected languages will be proposed when entering information about the different elements that can be translated (captions of controls, menu options, help message associated with a control, ...). The display order of these languages is identical to the one of the list of project languages.
    Versions 21 and later
    This order can be modified via the arrow buttons found below the list of project languages.
    New in version 21

  • When modifying the project languages, the modifications will be automatically taken into account:
    • any new object created in the different editors (Window, Report, Control, ...).
    • any element opened in the different editors (Window, Report, ...).
The default language (identified by the number "1") corresponds to the language used by default at run time. To modify it, use the popup menu of the language that will be used by default.

Linguistic options

The display of the numeric data found in the project (number, currency, date, ...) can be configured in each language supported by the project.
The parameters used by default are the ones defined in the linguistic options of Windows (accessible from the control panel of Windows).
To configure these options:
  1. Select the requested language in the left section of screen.
  2. Select the tab corresponding to the element to configure (number, currency, ...).
  3. Modify the requested parameters and validate.
Note: A button is used to reinitialize the parameters with the default values.
When creating an edit control or a table column that displays numeric data (number, currency, date, time, duration, ...), the input mask used will be the mask defined in the language options of project. This option is available in the windows and pages.
At run time, when an edit control or a table column has a mask "Defined by the project", the input mask and/or the display mask will automatically adapt according to the options selected in the project regarding the language displayed at run time.
Note: The "Various" option is used to define:
  • the writing direction.
  • the character set used.
  • the WDM translation file.
