Multi-Language Plugin - Add Translations to Types

Article Index

Add Translations to Types

The names or descriptions for Types, as entered / edited in the Setup Tools Customise Language menu Types tab, are by default displayed on screens, lookups, documents, reports, etc.


To use multi-language Types, Language Groups need to be created / added in the Setup → Groups menu - Languages tab.

1. Document Types (Action → Documents menu).

a) Invoices

b) Credit Notes

c) Quotes

d) Purchases

e) Supplier Returns

f) Orders


If you need to print the Universal Document layout files (One (1) Layout file for all document types), it is recommended that these Document Type Types be edited and / or translated to the singular. The following files will print the document type in the plural (if it is not changed to the singular):

LabelID906276 - Document layout (10 codes)

LabelID906277 - Document layout (15 codes)

LabelID906278 - Document layout (No codes)

For example if you print an Invoice, it should display Invoice and not Invoices on the printed layout file.
