Language Wizard

This wizard, which is opened from the Database Administration form - Tools - Wizards menu, scans standards contained in your database and extracts all the language dependent prompts and strings used within them.

This wizard will produce either a new prompt file or add the strings to an existing prompt file.

Language Wizard - Select Standards

When you first go to this page the Select Folder form will be opened, where you should choose the Standards folder containing the required standards.

Clear All

Press this button to clear the list of standards.

Select Folder...

Press this button to re-open the Select Folder form. The standards from the chosen folder will then be added to the existing list.

Language Wizard - Categories

This table contains a list of category xml files. The group names from these files will be added to the prompt file.


Press this button to choose another xml file to add to the list.


Press this button to remove the highlighted file from the list.

Language Wizard - Scanning

This page gives a progress report as the standards are being scanned for prompts and strings. Whilst this is happening the Restart button will actually be a Cancel button, allowing you to stop the process if required.

Language Wizard - Found Prompt

This page lists all of the prompts that were found, together with the number of occurrences of each and the standards or category files in which they were found.

Language Wizard - Existing Dictionaries

This page contains a list of dictionaries that have been installed - see Impact Options - Standards - Languages. You should select the ones you want to scan for existing translations of the prompts that have been found.

Language Wizard - Missing Prompts

This page displays the prompts that were not found in the existing dictionaries, so still need translating. They will be exported to the prompt file that is chosen on the next page.
