Creating a Localization
Localization Objects let you customize the standard English text that appears on your DataPages. The Localization Wizard contains all textual items and groups them in Categories so you can easily find and edit them as needed.
To create a Localization Object with the Caspio Bridge Styles Wizard, go to the Localizations view and click on the toolbar. This brings up the Localizations Wizard.
1. Localization Name and Options
Enter a name for your Localization.
Check Set as Default Localization to have this Localization automatically selected for each new DataPage.
2. Apply Localization to DataPages
This screen lists all DataPages in your account. Select the DataPages to which you wish to apply this Localization.
|Any DataPages created in former versions of Caspio Bridge are listed on this screen with a "Former version*" indicator. You can upgrade them to use the new version of Localizations, however, upgrading them cannot be reversed and you will lose all previous Localization settings. We recommend that you create copies of any former version DataPages before applying the new version to them.|
In the tree on the left, the elements are arranged in three Categories. Click to expand the category if collapsed:
Text, in turn, contains the three categories of text items that you can translate:
- Forms/Details Pages category lists all text items that appear on Web Forms, Details Pages, search forms, login forms, and Password Recovery DataPages.
- Results Pages includes all text items that appear on Results Pages of Search and Report DataPages.
- Mobile Forms category contains all text items that appear on Mobile Forms. You may want to keep your custom text for these items short to avoid making your Mobile Forms too crowded.
To provide translations, select each element in the sub-categories; all text items that pertain to it are listed in the table on the right. Select a string, check Enable Custom Text and enter your custom equivalent in the area provided.
Time Zone – Click on this category to see the time zone set for your account. If you expect your users to be in a different time zone, check Enable Custom Time Zone and select the appropriate time zone from the list.
If custom time zone is enabled, time values recorded by TimeStamp elements in DataPages using this Localization will be in this time zone. Otherwise, they are recorded in the account's time zone.
Formatting Standards are settings that define the appearance of formatted values in your DataPages.
To use pre-defined regional formatting standards, select the appropriate region from the list.
To use your custom format, first select the region with standards closest to the ones you wish to use. Then, select each Type in the table above, check Enable Custom Formatting and modify format settings using the boxes below. Refer to Format Types for a description of settings configurable for each type.
To reset any changes you have made to the currently selected Localization element and restore previously saved settings, click the Reset button.
Use the Search option to search through all categories or a specific category. Enter the word or phrase and click Find, then click Next to go to the next occurrence. The search is case-sensitive.
When done with all elements, click Finish.
A confirmation that your Localizations has been created is displayed. Click Close.
