Studio Server, Studio, and Studio for InDesign and InCopy can be run in one of the following languages (meaning: all the text in these applications such as menus, buttons, messages and so on, will be displayed in this language):
- American English (default)
- Brazilian Portuguese
- Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)
Changing the language
Languages can be changed for each user.
Step 1. In Studio Server, click Users in the Maintenance menu or on the Home page.
The Overview of Users page appears.
Step 2. Choose the user for which the language needs to be changed.
The User Maintenance page appears.
Step 3. From the Language list, choose the language:
|English (US)||American English|
Step 4. Click Update (or the equivalently named button in case Studio Server is run in a language other than English).
Areas affected by changing the language
Changing the user language affects the following areas:
- All Maintenance pages (other pages such as the Health Check page only display in English)
Studio for InDesign and InCopy:
- Column headers in the Studio panel of Studio for InDesign and InCopy
- The context menu when right-clicking files in the Studio panel of Studio for InDesign and InCopy
- Certain messages and dialog boxes
The remainder of the interface is controlled by the system language and the language in which InDesign and InCopy are run.
- The full interface
Other factors by which the language is affected
The language in which InDesign and InCopy are displayed is also affected by the following:
The language in which InDesign or InCopy is run. This is determined by the installer of InDesign or InCopy.
- The language of the operating system on which the client is run. Refer to the documentation for operating system.
Areas unaffected by changing the language
The following areas of the interface remain static, even when changing the language:
- Names of Brands, Publication Channels, Issues, Editions, Categories, Workflow statuses, and so on that were entered during the setup of the Brand.
- Names of Access Profiles, User Groups, Named Queries, and Metadata properties.
If needed, these need to be changed manually.
Changing Named queries (searches)
By default, the Search menu of the Studio panel in InDesign and InCopy, and the Search menu in the Search pane of Studio , contains the Named Queries 'Libraries' and 'Templates'.
Any translation of the names and the column headers shown in the query results should be translated through the Maintenance page for that particular Named Query.
Note: This means that it is not possible to implement more than one translation of a Named Query per Brand at the same time.
Changing the article component labels in Studio for InDesign and InCopy
The functionality of Studio for InDesign and InCopy allows users to create articles with specified article components such as body, caption, and head. InDesign users can make use of the Element Labels preferences for editing existing labels or creating new ones (these preferences are not available to InCopy users).
For more information about creating and using Element labels, see Working with Element Labels in Studio for InDesign.
The definitions of all custom made Element Labels used by InDesign and InCopy users are stored in the ElementTags.xml file. It is stored in the following location:
[InDesign application folder]/Plug-Ins\WoodWing
The file can be edited as required and shared across InDesign and InCopy users when needed.
Changing the InDesign Book Support script files
One of the features of Studio for InDesign is the ability to add layouts that are stored in Studio Server to a Book panel. (For more information, see Working with InDesign Books in Studio for InDesign.)
This functionality is driven by a script named Studio Book Support, and the text that appears in the messages are also stored as part of that script.
In rare cases where the text needs to be corrected or changed, the files can be edited.
The default location for these text files is:
[InDesign application folder]/Scripts/Scripts Panel/Smart Connection Book Support/Translations
The following files are available:
|Booklevel_ pt_BR.jsxinc||Brazilian Portuguese|
|Booklevel_ zh_CN.jsxinc||Chinese (Simplified)|
|Booklevel_ zh_TW.jsxinc||Chinese (Traditional)|
