Search Criteria

Enter your search options, then select the Search button. To remove a previous set of search options (except the Language option) and start over, select the Clear button.

Note: In all the “wildcard” fields, the % can be used to represent any one or more characters in your search.

Language. The Language field is used to search and view on a translated language. When the Language field is set to E (English) or left blank, the upper grid of the Translation screen displays translatable objects in Opera's default language, English. If another language is selected, the upper grid shows the translations into that language. The lower grid shows all other language translations for the object that is highlighted in the upper grid.


Translated in. Available when the Language field is E or blank. Select the down arrow to choose if you want to display objects that have been translated into at least one language, or objects that have never been translated into another language. Leave this field blank to display both types of objects.

Forms/Reports/Messages. Select the down arrow to display a list of forms, reports, and messages. Select the form, report, or message where you wish to do translations. For example, to display items on the ACT_MAIN form, select act_main; to display items on the findeptcodes report, select findeptcodes.

Version. To search for objects translated for a specific version, select a version from the list of values.

Type. Select the down arrow to choose an object type that you wish to search for (for example, a MSG, or a BUTTON).
