Manage Messages: Set up Languages

Le pamplemousse est dans la bibliothèque?

Translations have come to SignAgent! This new feature will allow you to apply your existing translations to all messages across your project.

Note, that SignAgent does not do automatic message translations (as those aren't always accurate), but instead helps you to apply translations quickly and efficiently.

There are two steps to setting up languages within SignAgent. Setting up the Primary Language, and setting up Secondary Languages for translations.

1. Set up Primary Language

To change the Primary Language, just click on where it says "English" (or whatever your current primary language is). This will take you to your organization settings.

Once you're there, you should click on the Primary Language Tab, and change this field to reflect your primary language. Don't forget to hit Save when you're done.

Note that this does not currently change the language of SignAgent's interface. It's more meant to reflect the language of your primary messages.

2. Set up Secondary Language(s)

To add a new secondary language, just click on the "+ new language" button

  1. Language Name: Pretty self-explanatory, whatever the name is of the language (or translation) you're adding
  2. Language Type: There are a few options here:
    1. Text: This will be the most common, and is the standard translation for other languages (French, Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, etc.)
    2. Visual: This is used if certain messages will always have symbols associated with them. This could be used in directory or directional signs to for destination symbols, like restrooms, cafeterias, parking, etc.
    3. Colour: Similar to Visual, this is used if certain messages will always have colours associated with them. This could be used to save time on Zone Colours or possibly for Emergency Red, etc.
  3. Editors: If you want members to be able to edit this language, even if they're not admins, you can add their email here.
  4. Fields: What fields will need translating to this language? When you add a field name here and then click Save, it will automatically add new Translation Fields for these fields. For example, adding Room Name to this field would automatically create a new Translation Field called "Room Name Spanish"
  5. Save: Don't forget to Save!

You can also add translations to fields on the Manage Fields page!
