We know many companies have branches all over the world and it would be more effective for the employees to have the system they work with every day in their native language. Flowis offers wide possibilities of translations to make the user experience as neat as possible.
Translations are set up in two different sections – System Translations and Content Translations. What is the difference?
These translations contain formulations used in system buttons, notifications, administration section, etc. – every word that was a part of Flowis before you started using it and configuring it for your company.
As you might assume, Content Translations contain all the formulations from your configurations – names of Statuses and Workflows, names of the fields in Transaction Types, names of Custom Tabs, etc. Everything that you set up to make Flowis work for your company is translated there.
💡 Tip: E-mail templates are not translated there - please use the possibility to add multiple versions for various language mutations in your e-mail templates.
Setting up Translations in Flowis
The first step is to create a new locale (search for Locales in the left menu). Set up its name (e.g. SK), and native name (e.g. Slovensky) and mark it as active.
Then you have to wait for the system to generate translation keys for System Translations. It may take a few minutes. If it takes longer than a day, please, contact your IT administrator.
Once you have the translation keys of System Translations generated (that means when you open System Translations, it is not a blank table anymore – there is a list of thousands of translation keys), you can start translating. You can do so either one by one – edit each of the rows (always look for the “Value” field in the table at the bottom) and save it manually; or you can download the whole list, translate it in your sheets editor (fill in the
Value column), and import the whole list to Flowis.
The same applies to Content Translations, the only difference is that you do not need to wait for translation keys to be generated – they are available immediately.
