Language features

The language features in GENP are extensive.

As the various language features are externalised it is possible for you to add a language to one of our features. You do not have to wait for us to add a language and then bring out the next release.

Please contact us if you want to add a language. Someone else may already be doing a translation. We also would like to ship the language with our next release.

You can change the Dates to one of the supplied languages or add your own.

The following screenshot shows a typical view. The 'Current Language' is Default. However the user has clicked on the row for German and clicked the Test button. In the panel at the base of the dialog the German equivalents of the Default language months are displayed. The German equivalents are displayed on the right hand side. (Note - the date languages in version 2.00 are English, French, German and Spanish)

Language Centre - Dates

The Forms dialog allows you to switch forms and dialogs to another language.

The following screenshot shows a simulated view. The 'Current Language' is Default. However the user has clicked on the row for German and clicked the Test button. In the panel at the base of the dialog a message in German is displayed. This demonstrates that the language has been switched correctly. (Note - the form languages in version 2.00 are English, German and Spanish)

The Messages dialog allows you to switch messages to another language.

The following screenshot shows a simulated view. The 'Current Language' is Default. However the user has clicked on the row for German and clicked the Test button. At the base of the dialog message number 17 is displayed. The message indicates that the German set of messages has been successfully accessed.

The Sources and Attributes dialog allows you to switch sources and attributes to another language, and to create sources and attributes in another language.

You will need to contact us to be given instructions on how to translate the sentences.

The following screenshot shows a typical view. The 'Current Language' is Default. The list of "Available Languages" shows one entry - Default. The user has clicked the Test button and the test results are displayed on the right hand side of the test panel. Notice how the test results mirror the entries on the left hand side. This is expected and means that the system is set up correctly. (Note - the source and attribute languages in version 2.00 are English)

Language Centre - Sources and Attributes

The Transform dialog allows you to add a new language to a GenBase. For example, a German user can transform their data into the default language so that their American cousin can see the data.

The following screenshot simulates adding the German language to the existing Default language.

The German language has been chosen from the "Choose Language" list. The next step is to click the button 'Add - no data'.
