Multilingual LabelMakerby Matthew Leering
This is my attempt at providing a simple, modular tool to FileMaker Pro developers that will translate all your field labels into the selected language. It’s scalable, efficient, and much easier to use than any of the other solutions I’ve found that aim for the same goal. Once implemented into your system, creating new labels is as easy as creating a new record, assigning it a variable name, and providing the various translations for it.
Try it out, let me know what you think, and definitely send any suggestions my way. I’ll be happy to implement them.
2014-07-07 –> Added a “Refresh All Windows” option as requested by Giedrius. Windows are refreshed in reverse order so as to maintain consistent order
2013-11-18 –> Altered field definition for Labels::LabelsByLanguage – Field now has an auto-enter calc that will prohibit entry of double quotes. It will replace them will single quotes (Double-quotes were breaking my call to Evaluate)
