Introducing the ABL GUI Designer : Reference : Other OpenEdge Tools : Translation Manager Tool
Translation Manager Tool
The Translation Manager tool is used to select the strings, data formats, and the interface of an ABL application to translate into one or more languages. You can also use the Translation Management System to customize the interface of an application for different customer sites. This tool works in partnership with the OpenEdge Visual Translator tool.
The OpenEdge Translation Management System consists of two tools:
*OpenEdge Translation Manager - lets you (the project manager) select procedures to translate, filter and extract text phrases, and create or add glossaries.
*OpenEdge Visual Translator - lets a translator translate the text phrases in context or from a list.
Note: The OpenEdge Translation Manager and the OpenEdge Visual Translator run in single-user mode only.
To start the Translation Manager tool, select OpenEdge > Tool > Translation Manager from the main menu in your OpenEdge AppBuilder perspective.
When started, the Translation Manager tool runs in a window outside the Progress Developer Studio Eclipse framework. Online help is available from the tool's menu bar.
