Hi,

My Client is looking to translate the built-in widget's labels to Spanish? Is there any built-in support that we need to switch the language and labels are already translated?

I uses the Silverlight AppBuilder, there was localized installer and that takes care of everything. How we need to it in WAB?

Regards,

Jamil

Jamil,

   The OTB (out of the box) widgets included with WAB are already localized for 26 languages and spanish is one of them. Localized label will appear when the app is deployed and the browsers language will determine the nls localization file to be used. There is not a localized installer like in SL as the deployed WAB app on the web server will display localized label based on the end users browsers language.

I can add to Roberts answer that if you want to control the language and not leave it to the browser language, there's a URL parameter for this. That's one of the new URL parameters in the latest release. Add  &locale=es to your URL. Read more about this here.

hi,

is there a way to automatically add the URL parameter every time someone is opening the app?

I want to publish a "clean" URL , without question mark and other words...

but I want that the page will know to behave according to the parameters i define.

Dikla.
