App Localization Settings

Article Number:040557

You can specify app descriptions and field names for the following languages: Japanese, English, and Chinese (simplified).
By configuring the Localization setting, users can show those names and descriptions in the localized language based on users' display language setting.
For example, if you specify an app name in both English and Japanese, the app name is displayed in English for the English user interface, and in Japanese for the Japanese user interface. If you want to display the app name in Traditional Chinese, enter text into the "中文(簡体)" field of the app name in the Localization setting. After that, when you select Traditional Chinese in the profile language setting, the app name is displayed in Traditional Chinese as you set it in the "中文(簡体)" field in the Localization setting.
