A language bundle is a file consisting of the key/value pair properties. Each property is connected to one or multiple UI components based on a property key.

 

Note that it is not possible to delete default language bundles, but you can create new ones based on them. Also, it is not possible to have two active bundles of the same type simultaneously.

    1. There are two ways to create a custom language bundle:

 

  1. Changing the language bundle by editing one-by-one property value.
  2. Downloading the language bundle, editing the file offline using the desired text editor, and importing it into the application.
    Note: The keys must not be changed. Otherwise, the changes will not be visible.
      1. To create a new language bundle by editing one-by-one property values:

     

    1. Click the Actions option and select the Pencil icon for the language bundle based on which you want to create a new one.

 

    1. Search the property value or key you want to change.
    2. Choose the desired key from the list. If you cannot find the key for the desired property value, you can use preview key mode to easily find it. For more information on how to use it, please visit the Preview keys mode.
    3. Edit the text.
    4. Confirm or discard the changes you made in the property value field.
