Translating database UI to your language

You can translate the database User Interface (UI) to the language of your choice.

For example, your database UI should be translated into Dutch:


The process is quite simple:

Choose a file with your language from this repository of translations.


Save the chosen file on your PC using the name dbstrings.txt


After that you can upload this dbstrings.txt file to database Resources.


As the result, the User Interface of your database will be translated.


How to create a file with translation:

If a file with your language is not added to the repository, you can create such file on your own.

First, download the sample text file and open it in a text editor of your choice, Notepad for example.

Below are first few lines from the file:

Lines starting with semicolon are comments – you do not need to translate them as they are added just for readability and ignored by TeamDesk. Other lines are key = value pairs. Key is an unique identifier TeamDesk can refer the text by and should not be altered. The value is text to translate. This is how, for example, German translation could look like:

Save the file with UTF-8 encoding under dbstrings.txt name and upload it to database Resources. As the result, the User Interface will be translated.
