dlg_localization_002

 

Note: You can choose whether to apply this localization to a group or across your whole project.

 

Localizing Data Values

 

This is under the control of the database handler so you will need to make changes in your database to handle or modify the values in the data itself.

 

Note: Remember that dbQwikSite shows data from your database, plus it uses your database field names as default labels.  You may need to adjust label names and ensure that your data content is already in the local language of your choice.
