Translation editor

A Translation editor is a feature in Valamis Administration portlet that allows you to customize UI labels. You can do it for any language supported in Valamis.

You need to turn on the needed languages in Liferay environment's Instance Settings as well if you want to use them in Valamis.

With this editor, you can change any text in the Valamis UI to your preference. If you want to change the translation or want to rename something, take the following steps.

Go to Valamis Administration -> Translation editor.

1. Choose a portlet from the drop-down menu and the language you want to edit.

2. Find the required label. You can use the default browser Search function, e.g. by Ctrl+F.

3. Type your preferred text in the Custom Value field.

4. Your changes are saved automatically.

You can also hide the label from the UI. For example, it is useful when your target language doesn't use some prepositions or words in that context.

It is possible to reset the custom labels. You can either reset all translations or clear the custom values only for currently selected portlet and language.

Import and export of custom values are also supported. All custom values are exported into a JSON file, which you can import into another Valamis environment. It will check for conflicts, as well, and allow you to resolve them however you wish.
