Language Maintain Languages The Language Window allows you to define multiple parallel language for users. This allows users to access the same data but have the windows, tabs and fields appear in different languages.

If a language is a System Language, you can change the User Interface to this language (after translation). Otherwise the language is only used for printing documents.

For the language code, we suggest using the Java convention of country and language (e.g. fr_CN - Canadian French).

Verify the translation creates missing translation records. Start this process after creating a new language.
