Translation Collections Overview

A Translation Collection is a customization object that stores translation strings with their translations. A single Translation Collection can contain many translation strings. A translation string is a key / value pair: the key being an identifier, and its value being a source string. Each key contains a value, a translation string, which can be translated into multiple languages. You can translate a string into any language supported by NetSuite. For a list of languages supported by NetSuite, see Configuring Multiple Languages.

If you are a NetSuite developer or NetSuite Administrator, you can create a collection of terms for translation. You can export the collection of terms to a translation vendor in the form of an XLIFF (.xlf) translation file. After the translation vendor provides translation of the collection of terms, you can import the translation file. You can use the collection of terms to translate labels and messages in the NetSuite UI and in SuiteApps. This collection is referred to as a Translation Collection.

You can now use SDF for Translation Collections to store translation strings with their translations in NetSuite. A Translation Collection is defined in an SDF project by translationcollection objects and XLIFF files. SDF can also be used to distribute translation strings from Translation Collections for translatable fields. For information about working with Translation Collections in SDF, see Translation Collections as XML Definitions.

In the user interface, you manage Translation Collections on the Manage Translations page, accessible through Customization > Translations > Manage Translations. For more information, see Manage Translations UI Overview.
