Defining input languages

You can specify which languages you want to use to input information in the Management Center for language-specific content, such as descriptions. You can only change the input language for translatable fields in properties views.


  1. Open a Management Center tool.
  2. Go to the properties view for the object you want to change the input language for.
  3. From the toolbar, click Select input language Select input language.
    Tip: If the selected store only supports one language, the Select input language Select input language icon is disabled. You can only define input languages if the selected store supports more than one language.
    The Select Input Language dialog displays.
  4. Select the language that you will use to input information for language-specific content (in addition to the default language) for the selected object. For example, to display both English (default) and French, click the French radio button.
  5. Click OK.


The user interface is refreshed to display all translatable fields for the selected input languages. Any field that is translatable will have the corresponding language description displayed beside its label in brackets.
