Hello, this blog is part 5 of the series ‘The Octyx 2016 Story’. See for the overview (part 1), full background and a list all related blogs the link here.
This specific blog describes in more detail the languages I use in Octyx, and what is needed to build them.
Octyx is available in 11 languages: in English, French (Français), Dutch (Nederlands), German (Deutsch), Hungarian (Magyar), Polish (Polski), Czech (Český), Italian (Italiano), Spanish (Español), Portuguese (Português) and in Romanian (Românesc). Real-time change of the language is included in the package.
The languages are made with help of many people. You can see this below. I owe many thanks to all these people.
The Romanian language is new in Octyx 2016, and Simona Sandu from Romania helped me realising this new language. So what had to be done :
- Adding all texts which are used in Octyx and Octyx Mobile : these are almost 3000 different records which had to be created
- Next to these detailed texts, all help texts had to be created also. You have to think on more than 10 different pages, including the screen with new elements.
- And finally, the Octyx system had to be prepared to be able to receive the 11th language. Due to the architecture, this was a quite straightforward task to change a screen, and to open the language to be available.
- The user can define or change his language whenever needed. On the mobile version, the language used is the langage chosen in the Windows Octyx version.
The website is currently available in 3 languages: English, French and Dutch. Including all help texts.
Enjoy the Octyx blogs, and take care. Go back here to the overview. Octyx manages your life!
