So far, we've looked at the option to offer your customers different languages in which to conduct their business. Checkfront also has a system-wide language option for the backend and default front end of your account. This enables you to change the language strings throughout the system, so if your business is based in France, you can set the default translation to French.
The default system-wide language for your account can be configured at Manage > Setup > Locale. Checkfront offers the ability to have more than one active language at a time and this applies to both the back end and customer facing pages.
A customer can configure their own language, if they have an online account with your business, providing the language has been activated by you. Languages can be managed at Manage > Languages > Checkfront Translations.
You may notice that some of the available languages are not fully translated yet. Or, you may simply wish to word a language string slightly differently. Therefore, you are able to create a private language pack for your account and make whatever changes you like, without affecting other Checkfront customer's accounts. To do this, click on the language add-ons link as highlighted below.
After clicking on the language add-ons link, you will be presented with the following screen. Click on the Create Private Translation button in the left sidebar to get started.
From the drop-down menu in the resulting pop-up window, select the language you wish to translate and click Create.
The next step is to simply type your translations into the fields within the Value column. You can search for particular language strings using the search box at the top of the list.
