Selecting Application Elements to Translate

Normally, you will want all elements of an application to be translated when the application is run in a language other than the Master Language. However, Visual ProMatrix allows you to control which elements of your application should be translated at the application level and at the individual object level.

Application Level

For each language in your application, the Properties page of the Language Builder and the Language Manager allows you to specify which elements of your application should be translated from their Master Language values.

The check boxes in the Translate column on the Properties page let you turn translation on and off at the application level for:

       Messages

       Report Fonts (see How to Localize Report Fonts)

       Strings

Within the Strings category, you can selectively turn translation on and off at the application level for the following object properties:

       Caption

       ControlSource

       DownPicture

       DragIcon

       Font

       Icon

       InputMask

       Picture

       RecordSource

       RowSource

       StatusBarText

       ToolTiptext

By default all items in the Translate column are selected for translation.
