Custom Table Translation

Sid Chudasama asked on March 5, 2018 16:28

Hi everyone,

I have few custom tables used for smart search filters. We need to translate data in those custom table. i see a translate field check box in custome table fields option(I think that should allow me to enter data for different culture but i dont see extra textbox while adding data), but couldn't find any more information on how to make it work. Filters are populated using query.

Found another way to do it. You can use Resource string with {$stringkey$} function where you input custom table data. (Note Macro doesn't work {%GetString("srtingkey")%}), Didn't try to add evaluate macro function in filter query since it is only for transformations I think. If you are using transformation you can try it.

Custom tables dont support translation. your best bet is to add a new column to your table to indicate which culture that row relates to.


FruitId  | FruitName
1        |  Apple
2        |  Banana
3        |  Cherry


FruitId  | FruitName  | Culture
1        |  Apple     | en-GB
2        |  Banana    | en-GB
3        |  Cherry    | en-GB
4        |  Jabłko    | pl-PL
5        |  Banan     | pl-PL
6        |  Wiśnia    | pl-PL

You can then filter your queries based upon culture.
