Easy Translation

From WHMCS Documentation

What is Easy Translation

Easy Translation allows you to localise supported database field values into multiple languages.

Localised field values display in the client area when an end user selects a given language.

Enabling Easy Translation

To enable translations, navigate to Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings > Localisation or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > General Settings > Localisation.

Check the Dynamic Field Translation checkbox and click Save Changes.

Localising a Field

The value you enter in the field located beside the Translate button (the parent field) should always be for the default system language. You can find your default system language in the Language setting at Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings > Localisation or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > General Settings > Localisation.

If you wish to define a value in other languages, click Translate next to the field that resembles the image below.

Note
If you do not see a Translate button next to a field that supports translations, double-check whether the Dynamic Field Translation setting is enabled.

This will open a dialog window displaying all available languages in the system. The default system language will not display because the system uses the parent field value for that.

If you do not wish to provide a localized version of a field for a language, leave the field empty. When no value is defined, the system will use the parent field value.
