You can replace the Smart Instrumentation interface language.  The System Administrator must first add languages to the database.  After adding a language to the database, you can replace your current language with the added one.

The following languages are currently available as add-ins:

  • English (default)

  • French (partial translation)

  • German (only some terms are translated)

  • Custom (for languages other than English, French, or German)

After adding the interface language, you can do the following:

  • Replace the existing interface language with the new interface language.

  • Translate interface text phrases.

Translated text appears in the main Smart Instrumentation interface, the Administration module, and in the Import and Merger utilities.  The text strings are stored in the In_catalog.DDTI file.

Text in the following software components is not translated:

  • Initialization and Update interfaces

  • Rule Manager

  • Internal Setup

  • SAP Interface

  • Fluke Wizard

  • External Editor

  • Process Data Editor

Text strings for other software components are located in the following separate resource files:
