General Guidelines

Length of translated texts

Beware of the fact that most texts have a specific place in the software, and that the size is mostly limited.
Use the length of English text as a reference of the available minimum length for translations.

Supported characters

The full UTF-8 character set can be used for translations.

Completeness of translations

Take your time to complete and check all translations.
If tags are missing, share a screenshot of the untranslated tag in the User Interface and contact Orbit Support.

Do not use the translation tool in a customer setup

Do not copy the translation tool in a customer's setup. It includes your strict personal reseller login and password.
To add translations that are not yet included in our software builds, just copy the downloaded translations snapshot file to the customer's setup. Note, keystrokes are no longer available when copying the language snapshot file.

Translations in the released software versions

At software release, all translations are automatically embedded into the software builds.
