Sales quotes layout - translations

Posted on by 27

I am making a template/layout for a sales quote where i will include a link for payment.

I am doing this with word, and i managed to create the layout with a link which works as expected.
But my customers can come from everywhere in the world, so i would like to have my url link display "Pay" in their langauge.

Is it possible to somehow create a field/mergefield and then make a translation for different languages, so my customers will get the "Pay" text based on their customer country settings?
I did try to read alot of documentation, and i would like to avoid having to install a app/re-invent the wheel, i can understand AL code by looking at it, but im not sure how i could do it with AL, if that's needed.

I know i could create a template for every language, but that's too redundant imo.

    If you are a user in Business Central, you can create and edit layouts, but you can not modify the dataset, or add fields to the dataset. Translations come from the dataset, so a developer needs to add labels or captions in the dataset, and translate those in the translation file.

    Just create a label in the report object and then use xlf file to translate it into different languages.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi! You can do it in AL Code now for your reports, relatively new feature.
