Add/remove languages

Add a language

  1. To add a language, select one from the drop-down menu.

    The drop-down menu shows all languages available for ICA-AtoM (including those not yet supported).

  2. Select the desired language and click the "Add" button.

  3. ICA-AtoM adds the language and closes the "I18n languages" section; the added language will now appear in the language menu. To see these changes implemented in the language navigation menu at the top left corner of the screen, refresh your browser and the added language should appear as an option.

    • Note: if a user selects a language that is not currently supported (i.e., where the translation XLIFF file has not yet been created), ICA-AtoM will refresh the settings screen without implementing any changes. See issue 962.
  4. To continue adding languages, expand the "I18n languages" section and repeat these steps as required.

Remove a language

  1. To remove a language, click the delete icon beside it in the list.

  2. ICA-AtoM removes the language and closes the "I18n languages" section; the removed language no longer appears in the language menu.

  3. To remove additional languages, expand the "I18n languages" section and repeat these steps as required.

    When you remove a language, existing translations of database content into that language remain in the application, but are not accessible. If you add the language back, the translations will be accessible again.

Support for Eastern language characters (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc.) is not installed by default in Microsoft Windows version previous to Windows Vista.
