Language translation provides the ability to enable Multiple Languages in the LongJump Platform and configure custom messages using the Translation Workbench and Custom Labels. Organizations can decide which of the supported languages will be available for use. Individual users can then select their language from the list of available languages.

Example
In an organization based in North America, language translations are set up to display language labels and messages written in Spanish, as well as the default English language. The users can then choose the language they prefer.

Supported Languages

These languages are pre-loaded into the platform:

  • English (en)
  • Spanish (es)*
  • Portuguese (hi)*
* Recent additions to the platform may not yet have been translated.

Note: If your service provider has made additional languages available, administrators will see them listed under Company Information.

ISV Considerations
  • To be available for use in the platform, additional language translations must be preloaded via the Translation Workbench.
  • The list of languages that can be supported is determined by the character set available at the server level.
