21 Managing Application Globalization
You can run applications built in App Builder concurrently in different languages.
This section describes how to translate an application built in App Builder.
- Understanding Application Translation and Globalization Support
A single Oracle database instance and Oracle APEX can support multiple database sessions customized to support different languages.
- Specifying the Primary Language for an Application
Globalization attributes specify how the Oracle APEX engine determines the primary language of an application.
- Applying Format Masks to Items
The Oracle APEX engine applies globalization settings for each rendered page. This default behavior can impact the display of certain items such as numbers and dates.
- About Translating Applications for Multibyte Languages
If your application must run in several languages simultaneously (such as Chinese and Japanese), consider configuring your database with a character set to support all of the languages.
- Understanding the Translation Process
To translate an application developed in App Builder, you must map the primary and target language, seed and export text to a translation file, translate the text, apply the translation file, and publish the translated application.
- Translating Messages
Learn when and how to translate messages in an Oracle APEX application.
- Translating Data That Supports List of Values
You create a dynamic translation to translate dynamic pieces of data. For example, you might use a dynamic translation on a list of values based on a database query.
- Understanding Supported Globalization Codes
If you are building a multilingual application, it is important to understand how globalization codes affect the way in which your application runs. These codes are set automatically based on the application-level Globalization attributes you select.
