The iGrafx Platform UI fully supports 16 languages. The Info Center supports 8 of those languages and defaults to English for the others. See Language Support for more information.
Beyond supporting 16 User Interface languages, the Platform also supports multilingual content in Web diagrams, IGX diagrams, Object names and objects Summary and Purpose fields. In order to add additional content languages to a Repository:
- Go to the Repository Configuration area
- Go to the Languages tab
- Click ADD and pick the language you wish to add
Once a second language has been added to a Repository, a language control will become available from the user menu.
Individual users have control over the User Interface language and the preferred content language. See the My Profile topic for more information on configuring the display languages.
The language region combinations are not all represented by flags. For combinations which have a defined language and region, the region may be represented by a flag, or by it's two character code. For combinations which only specify a language, a globe icon is shown in place of the flag or two character code.
Setting a language to be the Main language
One language will always be designated as the main language. Its text label will be in bold color to identify it.
You can change which language is used, by first selecting one of the other available languages, and then clicking the Set Main button.
The main language for a repository is used during various scenarios as a sort of fallback language when it is not clear which language should be used.
When creating new content and objects, a user's chosen language (set via their Profile) will be used. However, if the repository does not support their chosen language, then the repository's configured main language will be used by default.
Another example of the main language being used is when importing Diagrams (exported from other repositories that are using unsupported languages).
