In Kimble’s Winter 20 release, Kimble has introduced language packs allowing you to use Kimble in the following languages in addition to the default English:
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
- Portuguese (European)
Before you can enable these languages, they must be deployed to your Organization. To have a language deployed to your Organization, have your System Administrator contact Kimble.
If you have overridden any field names with custom labels, you might need to override the translation, too, as the Language Pack will insert our translation of the original field names. For example, if you use “Staff” instead of “Resource”, any non-English language versions of Kimble will display translations for “Resource”. You can override these with custom translations of your own if required.
Kimble Objects and Labels in the application are translated, but business data, such as the names of Products, Purchase Order Rules and Usage Behaviour Rules are not. Menu Item translations are not automatically applied.
If you have any feedback on a translation, have your Kimble System Administrator raise a Zendesk ticket.
To enable a Language:
- From Setup, enter Translate in the Quick Find box and select Translation Settings.
- If the Translation Workbench is not enabled, Enable
- In the Translation Workbench, click Add.
- In the Select Language section, select the Language from the drop-down list.
- Ensure the Active checkbox is selected.
- Add any translators as required.
Translators need the “View Setup and Configuration” Salesforce permission to customize any translations.
- Click Save.
Enabling Portuguese (European) requires additional steps to enable End User Languages in Salesforce. You do not need to do this for Portuguese (Brazilian).
To do this:
- Navigate to Setup > Language Settings.
- In the Language Preferences section, select the Enable end-user languages
- Click Save.
You can now enable Portuguese (European) in the same manner as the other Language Packs
Translating Menu Items
Complete the following steps for each menu.
To activate Menu Item translation in your Organization:
Navigate to the Menu tab.
Switch to the “All” list view and order the Menu Name column alphabetically (if this is not already the case).
This will make it easier to track which menus you have updated.
Open the first menu, for example “ApplicationRole”.
In the Menu Items section, click Manage Translations.
From the drop-down list in the top left-hand corner of the screen, select the required language.
A column for labels for the selected language appears. The fields are currently blank.
Click Import and then, when prompted, OK.
Kimble populates all fields for which translations exist.
To customize any Menu Item labels, or to fill in any blank fields, enter the translation directly into the field.
To remove all translations for a language for the menu, click Del above the column.
To change your Kimble language:
- Navigate to the Advanced User Details page of your User Settings.
- Click Edit.
- In the Locale Settings section, select the required Language.
- (Optional) Select your Locale.
Some Salesforce elements, such as dates/month names and decimal separators (for example , or .) use the Locale setting to determine how they appear on-screen.
- Click Save.
