How to Manage Language and Text Setup

Summer reader allows you change the language of the system. Languages can be configured to include real-world languages such as Spanish or French, or to set up wording specific to groups or demographics (teen-speak, simple explanations for kids, programs designed for moms or seniors).

Access the Language\Text Setup page from the System Maintenance Menu.

To add a new language, click Add New.

To edit a language template, click the icon.

The Language\Text Setup Screen contains the following fields:

Language ID
Each language template is assigned a preset ID number.
For new Templates, this copies settings from an existing language template
The name of the language template
A description of the language template (for readers under 13, for teens, ect)
The region and language information. Fixed after initial entry.

To configure text, open a find box in your browser. Do this by hitting control + F . This will help you find the text you are looking for. Only edit text within quotation marks. Once you've configured languages you can apply them to a program.

In the Program Setup screen, click Language\Text Setup.

There you can assign language Templates to the program. Each program can have multiple languages assigned to it.

If multiple languages are available, patrons can select them from the patron home page.
