Localization of radio buttons' text values

   —   
If you want to localize radio buttons' text values you can use the localization macro expressions to do the trick for you.
The localization macros can be used when manually defining options for the 'Radio buttons' field type. 

1. Go to the 'Site Manager-> Development-> Document types-> <document type>-> Edit-> Fields' and select the radio buttons field,

2. In the 'Field type' select the 'Radio buttons',

3. Next specify the options manually like advised- specify pairs in the '<value>;<text>' format. Use the localization macro for the text value. Refer to the picture below:

4. Create translation of the macro for all your languages through the 'Site Manager-> Development-> UI cultures-> <culture>-> Edit-> New string'.
