English (United States) is the default language used by the tool UI. However, you have the option to set a different language as the default language. When you set a default language, any CAF file opened appears in the default language, rather than the CAF file language. A base translation of the other languages is provided (see Localization Preferences). You can use the localization preferences as an environment to translate the other languages listed in the Languages tab.

To set localization preferences:

  1. On the Settings menu, select Localization. The Preferences - Localization screen appears. See the Preferences - Localization Screen section.

  2. On the Languages tab, select the check boxes of the desired language used by the tool UI.

  3. On the Localization tab, click the desired locale, such as German (Germany).

    Note: If you would like to set this language as the default language, select the Use Default Language When Any CAF is opened (Ignore CAF Language) check box. If you select this check box, any CAF file opened appears in the default language, rather than the CAF file language.
    Important: If you are selecting a locale/language for the first time, exit the tool. Then, open the tool again to automatically populate the language data.
  4. On the Naming tab, type the desired text translation in the Translated Value column.

  5. On the Systems tab, type the desired text translation in the Translated Value column.

  6. On the Views tab, type the desired text translation in the Translated Value column.

  7. On the Selection Trees tab, select a selection tree in the navigation pane and type the desired text translation in the Translated Value column in the right pane.

  8. On the Local Display Dictionary tab, type the desired text translation in the Translated Value column.

  9. On the UI Resources tab, type the desired text translation in the English Value and Translated Value columns.

    Note: To save your UI Resources changes, you must export the changes, then restart the tool. See Exporting Localization Preferences.
