Adding Translations for Configuration Values

You can add translations for certain configuration values.

If you are for example configuring a metadata card description for a certain object type, you may add translations for the text used in the description, so that a vault user with the appropriate language settings can see the description on the metadata card in the correct language.

Do the following steps to add translations for a configuration value:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Expand Document Vaults.
  4. Expand a vault.
  5. Select Configurations.
  6. In the gray navigation area, expand the configuration category that you want to edit and then locate the configuration key for which you want to add translations.
    The keys for which you can add translations can be identified by the cogwheel icon () shown in the value field.
  7. Click the cogwheel icon () on the right side of the configuration value field.
    Result:The Translate Content dialog is opened.
  8. Use the Default language drop-down menu to select the default language.
    The translation for the default language is used if the requested translation is not available.
  9. Use the Language drop-down menu to select the language of the value.
  10. Enter the value in the text field in the selected value.
  11. Click Add Translation to add a translation.
  12. Repeat the steps 9 and 10.
  13. Click OK when you are ready.
  14. Click Save in the configurations editor to save your changes.
