Modifying Translation Collection Strings

To modify strings in a collection:

  1. Go to Customization > Translations > Manage Translations.

  2. On the Strings subtab, click the ellipsis sign (...) to the left of the string you want to edit.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. On the Edit string window, edit the following information for the string you want to modify:

    • Source String - The translation string in the source language.

    • Key - The unique identifier that differentiates a source string from other collection strings.

    • Description - Enter a description for the source string. This description helps translators understand the context of the term for accurate translation. The description is the when, where, and why users see the source string in the application.


    You cannot modify the string’s collection.

  5. Click Save.


In addition to the Manage Translations UI, you can also work with translation strings through SDF. In SDF, ”Key”, the identifier, is referred to as ”scriptid”.
