Preferred display language

Labels of input elements and tooltips in forms are displayed by default in the language that is currently being edited.
In the FirstSpirit world, this language is also referred to as the “display language” (or “editorial language”). Which label is used in which language is defined by the project developer.

The “Preferred display language” menu item can be used to select which language is to be used as the display language.

All languages defined as editorial languages are offered for selection in this menu.

Language selection:

  • Either a preferred display language can be selected in which content is displayed or
  • Automatic: The display language is determined based on the language selected on the FirstSpirit start page.

This language selection generally affects the content of the media management.
If the language is changed (including “Automatic”), a dialog is displayed with a corresponding message. The “Reload browser” button triggers the reload of the browser content.

Always use in forms: By activating this option, the display language selected in this submenu will also be used for the labeling in forms.

In the navigation bar and in reports, the language continues to be based on the selected preview language.

The settings made in the “Preferred display language” submenu are saved project-wide for the respective user.
