How do I manage multilingual document texts?

Overview

In metasfresh, you can record manual texts for every document type (e.g., bill of lading, incoming invoice, purchase order, sales order, quotation, etc.) and autonomously transfer these texts into your business partners’ languages so that when you print commercial documents for foreign business partners, the texts will automatically appear in their respective languages on these documents.

Steps

Open the translation entry

a) Via the navigation menu

  1. Open “Document Type Translation” from the menu.
  2. Use the filter to find the entry for which you want to add a foreign language text version. There is one entry for each available language (see column Language).

b) Jumping from the entry via the sidebar

If you are already looking at the document type for which you want to add a foreign language text version, you can take the following steps:

  1. Use the entry’s related documents to jump into the window “Document Type Translation” (under SYSTEM in the sidebar).
  2. In this window you will see all translation entries for the selected entry.

Add text versions in foreign languages

  1. Open the entry of the language in which you want to write the text, e.g., “Deutsch (CH)”.
  2. In the text box Document Note enter the foreign language text version that shall appear at the bottom of the document.
  3. In the text box Description enter the foreign language text version that shall appear at the top of the document.
  4. metasfresh saves the progress automatically.
