Translation of Event Forms, Event Fields and Event Options into a different language
You can set many of the Module buttons and system links to show in a different language using the Language button on the Account module.
Now, a specially assigned system builder can download a file of all of the Event Forms, Event Field names and even the Event Field options so that they can be translated correctly into a different language. These languages include:
On the Builder site, Users who have been given permission will be able to access the Translation Modules
Firstly, click on the "Translation" button and choose a language that you want to translate to
It will then generate a CSV spreadsheet of all Form Names, Profile Names, Fields, Fields Descriptions and event Field Options.
Once the CSV has downloaded, do NOT open it with Excel. YOU can ONLY open the file with LibreOffice Calc software. Choose to show in the download list (or show in folder)
DO NOT OPEN THE FILE WITH EXCEL or the translation will break
You must use Libre Office to open the file this because the file needs to be opened using a special Unicode UTF 8 format. To find out more, or to download Libre office go to the following link:
From the Downloads List, choose the "Open With" option and select the LibreOffice Calc Programme. If you do not have this you can download the LibreOffice software for free yourself
Select to open the file with commas separating the columns (e.g. a csv text file). Select the Unicode (UTF-8) option for the Character Set and click OK
The File may only open in "Read Only" format. Click on "File" and "Save As" and choose a location to save it to. You MUST also tick the Edit Filter settings
The file will open and there will be a Translation Column for you to enter in the Translation Data
Once you have translated all of the fields/options that you require Delete all of the additional fields/forms from the file that are not translated
When you have completed the Translation, click on Save and Close and save the file as a Text CSV (.csv)
Again, save as csv file, click on Edit filter settings and ensure it is being saved with the Character Set Unicode UTF8
