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:

  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese

On the Builder site, Users who have been given permission will be able to access the Translation Modules
