The Translations page provides the opportunity for you to have control over Web Office text changes and language translations.
When new text is added to the Web Office Admin, it gets added to the internal strings system where it can be translated to the various market/language combinations you have enabled. Translations are displayed in the Web Office based on the value entered in the export document. If there is no value entered for the market/language, it will default to the next available value.
In Web Office Admin, navigate to: Content Management > Translations.
Exporting translations provides you with a spreadsheet file (.CSV) that contains all the translated Web Office text. You filled out the spread sheet with your values and import it back into the system.
Language - Select the language for which you want to export and input translations.
Include market-specific translations - If there are multiple markets for the Spanish language (Mexico – Spanish, Spain – Spanish, Puerto Rico – Spanish), you can enter market-specific translations. If market-specific translations are not required, or entered, it will default to the next available value.
Only include missing translations - Checkbox to limit the export to only the words/phrases that have no translations in the system.
EXPORT - Export the .CSV file.
When you export a document, there are multiple columns shown. The first column will always be English to show what the original value is. This is also the system default.
Important: The System Default (English) column should not be adjusted in the translation process.
If adjusted, the system will not recognize the English value, or the translation provided. Associates will also see an error in the Web Office where the text lives.

Importing translations allows the admin to upload all of the translations that were entered into the export document.
- IMPORT - Opens your computer’s file finder window, where you can select your completed export .CSV file. The translations will show in the Web Office once the cache is recycled. This can take up to 30 minutes.

Adding and Editing Strings/Values
When you create a custom page you can use the
translate attribute to assign a string key to an HTML element (e.g.,
<p translate="example_key"></p>). This allows you to manage the text through the translations system and make sure your localization is consistent.
Use the Strings/Values widget to enter your string key and assign it a text value.
- Choose Action - Select whether you want to Add New String, Edit String Value, or Delete.
- Application - Select either the Enrollment or Replicated applications.
- String Key - Enter your string key.
- String Value - Enter the text value for the string key that will display in the Web Office.
- SUBMIT - Submit the changes.
