  • The translation editor lets you translate text and manage your translation directly from Service Studio. To open the editor go to the Data > right-click the Multilingual Locales folder > click Edit Translations. Translation editor also opens when you add a new translation language.

    These instructions are part of the technical preview for translating Reactive Web and Mobile Apps. See Technical Preview: Multilingual apps for more information.

    Once you open the translation editor, you can:

    • Translate text by entering the translation in the Translation in (language code) column (1).
    • Switch languages for translation by selecting the language code in the heading of the Translation in (language code) column (2).
    • Set text as translatable / non-translatable by selecting one of the options in the Behavior list (3). See
    • Filter and search the text by using the tools in the Filter section of the translation editor (4). With the translation window open, select an element in the screen, and then click the button with the arrow icon to show that element in the editor.
    • Navigate to a text in the module by double-clicking a Text field, to see the text in the context.
    • See the translation progress, as it shows in the Statistics section (5).

    Translation editor overview

    If a translatable text has no translation, the app shows the text in the default language of the app (en-US).

    Translatable and non-translatable text

    The Behavior column in the translation editor shows what to do with the text in the translation process:

    • Translate. Translatable and it's exported in the translation files.
    • Don't translate. Non-translatable and it isn't exported in the translation files.
    • Not defined. Neither translatable or non-translatable, and it isn't exported in the translation files.

    You can also set property for several selected cells with text by using TRANSLATE, DON'T TRANSLATE, and NOT DEFINED buttons. Use the Ctrl/Shift key for multiple selection or Ctrl+A to select all cells in the list.

    Service Studio automatically sets as translatable the following text:

    • Screen titles
    • Button labels
    • Text in the screens
