Language Files: Managing translations of the LMS365 product text

Introduction

The LMS365 product includes a large selection of text to guide admins and users. This text is available in 23 different languages and 25 languages for the LMS365 mobile app. Besides this list of languages, customers can provide their own translations of the LMS365 product text for all languages supported by SharePoint.

You might want to change the wording of some translation, alter the text of some labels, or introduce an entirely new language by customizing all text of the product labels of LMS365. This can be done by managing the language files. 

In this article, we will walk you through how you can customize language files in LMS365 and what influences which language the text is displayed in.

Adding custom text and translations

There are two ways to add custom text and translations.

Both are done from the Global Settings of the LMS365 Admins Center.

1. Go to the Settings section > Language Files > and select the tool for which you would like to change the text of the labels: the Course Creator, SCORM & AICC Player, Learning Module Builder, or Quiz.

2. Select a language in the Select Language drop-down list.

Translation are currently available only for the languages marked with an asterisk. Selecting a language without an asterisk, you can provide your own translations.


IMPORTANT:
The language of the admin's browser will be listed as the first in the Select Language drop-down list to the admin in question. This will happen even though the language is not translated in or supported by LMS365. Therefore, if the first language in the list is not translated in or supported by LMS365, it should not be selected when adding custom text and translations.
