Some steps can be performed by a translator working offline in an Excel spreadsheet who needs no Process Commander skills.

  • Verifies whether localization is enabled in the user interface rules of the application..
  • Provides the ability to extend and build on Pegasystems-provided language packs for French, German, Japanese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese

Rules Inspector for Field Values

The new Field Value Inspector tool supports testing, evaluation, and fine-tuning of localized applications, by allowing updates to field value rules that contain translations while viewing the application.

  • Displays visual indicators Globe that link text elements on a form to the associated field value rules..
  • Easily identifies missing field value rules, for text labels, error messages, ToolTips, and so on
  • Provides quick access to the field value rule through a pop-up window, so a missing or incorrect translation can be revised immediately.

For example, the English label "Rejection note" map appear on a flow action form at runtime, with an explanatory Tooltip. Using the Field Value Inspector, you can access the language-specific field value rule that defines the German (or Spanish, or other) language equivalent phrase.
