Configuring Localization

Before you can configure the base locale and user profiles, you must configure and enable localization in Order Management. This identifies the languages available for user interface pages, product descriptions, and client-facing information.

You can create locale groupings and then add individual locales into that grouping. For example, you can create a locale label, such as French, and then add individual locales, such as French - Belgium, French - Canada, and French - France. When the locale groupings are created, you can use the available locales in Customer Service Center when creating a customer order or when retrieving product descriptions from a merchant's catalog.

Note: When the languages are selected here, they appear in all locale lists.

See Configuring Multiple Currencies.

  1. In Order Management Administration: click Settings > Preferences.
  2. On the General tab, click Localizations.
  3. On the Localizations page, click Enabled to enable one or more locale groupings.
    The Localization list appears on the right side of the page. Locale groupings appear with a Label, Short Label, and Description.
  4. Enter a label for the locale grouping and click Add.
    The new locale label is added to the list. For example, you could enter French as the label.
  5. Click the newly added locale to add or edit information.

    You can add or edit the following:

    • Code
    • Visible
    • Label
    • Short Label
    • Description
    These parameters are only descriptive; the actual use of multiple localizations is handled manually.
  6. Click Update.
  7. At the bottom of the page, select a locale from the list on the right, and click Add.
    The locale appears in the list under the Label heading.
  8. Repeat for additional locales for this grouping.
    For example, for the French grouping, you might add French - Belgium, French - Canada, or French - France.
