Managing System Languages

Language is a core component of system loaclization and content translation in Oro applications that performs the following functions:

  • Groups translations for all the text system elements available to the user (labels, UI, etc).
  • Enables download (export) and upload (import) of the system elements identifiers and their translation to the target language. This enables you to customize translation and update it in the current instance only.
  • Enables installation of the translation updates from the third party translation services.

To view all Languages, navigate to System > Localization > Languages in the main menu.

Localization

Localization helps to bind the language and locale-specific formatting for smooth localization of the Oro system elements and messages visible to the user.

To enable easy inheritance from the parent or similar language, localizations may form groups organized as an ancestors tree, for example:

  • English

    • English (UK)
    • English (USA)
    • English (Canada)

To view all Localizations, navigate to System > Localizations in the main menu.
