Salesforce Translation Workbench using Visualforce

09:12 4 Comments A+ a-

Hi Everyone,

I created a registration form in which you can change language according to you and then all content on form will display in selected language. I did this using 'Translation Workbench' feature of salesforce. I added 5 languages (English, Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese). You can add according to your requirement.

 
How to set up Translation Workbech:
1) In search panel on left side of salesforce org, type 'Translation Settings', First time, you will have need to enable translate workbench then you can 'Add' any language which one you want. You can also select users who can use that language.



2) Again in search panel, type 'Custom Labels', here give api name of label and value in English (default is English).



3) Into above create label, into 'Translations' section, create new, select language from picklist and into 'Translation Text', place converted text in selected language.



4) Your label is ready and you can use this label on your visualforce page like that '{!$label.firstname}'.



How to view form:

1) You can select language using 'Select Language' dropdown on this form.
2) All form contents will be change into selected language.
3) After 'Submit' form, a thanks message will be display into selected language.
4) When close Thanks message, again it will redirect to main form.

Form in 'Chinese' :

Form in 'Arabic':


Submit message in selected language, for example, I selected 'Spanish' and fill form and click on 'Submit':

Mufiz,

You can add languages using 'Language Settings' option of salesforce. You can enable 'End user Languages' and 'Platform-only Languages'. And, then add languages into available picklist of Language.
Please let me know if still have any issue.
