Localizing titles and messages

You can localize titles and messages in BMC Digital Workplace, as described in this topic. 


Before you begin

Review the languages and locales supported in BMC Digital Workplace. See, Supported languages and locales.

To localize titles and messages

Follow this procedure for each area that you are localizing.

  1. From the BMC Digital Workplace Admin console (http://server:port/dwp/admin), access the applicable configuration screen, as described in the localizable areas and fields table.
  2. Select the locale for which you are providing localized text, as in the following example screen.

    Important

    For every title and message that you are localizing, first modify the text for the default locale. If you are modifying existing text provided by BMC, you must also modify the text for all locales that your users might use. The default text is shown on the user’s device if the device has no text defined for the locale or no specific locale selected.

    For example, a localizable area includes text provided by BMC for all locales; users with a specified English locale see the text in English, however, users with a specified Hindi locale, see the default text, because Hindi is not a supported language. Asset actions do not include text provided by BMC, so you might choose to enter terms for the default locale only.

  3. Enter the localized text into the localizable fields.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each language to which you want to localize.
  5. Click Save.
