Orbit Translation Settings

Replace System Tags in Startup Configuration

When updating your translations, English will be used as reference and system language.
Use the Language Snapshot Utility to download and use your translations.

To view your Translations the English System Tags will be replaced / overruled by the downloaded Tags :

<Installation directory>/program/config/orbit.ini

system.languagename       english
system.languagefile       orbit.language.ini
  • system.languagename : Internal language name of the active embedded software translations.
  • system.languagefile : Downloaded language file to overrule the used embedded software translations.

Review Tags & Translations in Application

Orbit provides a “language debug mode” to verify your updated translations.

<Installation directory>/program/config/orbit.ini

debug.language.settings		true

If the language debug mode is enabled, the downloaded translations snapshot will be used and the tag reference will be displayed if a translation is missing :

  • {translation} : tag is translated, well done
  • {?tag?} : tag is available but not translated or tag exists but is currently not available via the online translation editor, if so contact Orbit support.
  • English translation : tag doesn't exist, contact Orbit support to add missing tag in software.

More information about the Language Debug Mode, please contact support at orbitgt dot com.

Embed Translations in Software

To embed your translations in an Orbit software build, the Orbit team needs to recompile the code.
Any Orbit installer includes all languages. At product release the latest translations are automatically downloaded to be embedded in the software.

To start Orbit using another embedded language, the system language setting needs to be adjusted :
<Installation directory>/program/config/orbit.ini

For example to use Spanish translations

system.languagename       espagnol
