The Localized Text Designer is where you localize displayed text labels for fields in AyaNovaLite.

 

Localization can be the process of changing text to display in another language or to change terminology to suit your unique business requirements.

 

For example, you may localize a text field to change what is presently displayed as “Clients” to display as “Properties” if you provide service for properties rather than clients. Or your may even localize all text fields to a language other than English.

 

AyaNova includes four sample localizations with English as the default selected in the user entry screen. The sample locales are English, French, German and Spanish.

 

The default English locale is not directly customizable. You must create a copy of an existing locale, and then edit that custom locale.

 

AyaNovaLite includes three additional example language locales - Deutsch, Español and Français

Where selected:

 

Select the locale in the User entry screen for the field Default Language

NOTE: A change in locale does not take effect until the user has completely exited and then next logs in. This is because localized text for labels is loaded only when the user newly logs in.

 

 

How to create a new locale:
