Edit interface texts

The interface text editing feature allows for configuration localization.

Configuration localization consists of displaying 1C:Enterprise string values in the languages specified by the "Common - Languages" branch of the configuration objects tree. These can be interface item names, object names and aliases, help information, module texts, and so on.

The most complicated task here is determining where the language text should be entered. Therefore this feature is also useful when only one language is defined.

To start a search select Edit - Edit Interface Texts.

Configure a search. Click the "Find" button. Designer will search the specified scope for interface texts and produce a table listing all texts found.

The first column displays the location where the text was found. The other columns correspond to the languages used in this configuration. The list of languages may contain deleted languages, but if there are texts in these languages, they are also listed.

The table contents is sorted by one of the columns. To sort by a different column, click that column's header. Clicking the column header again changes the direction of the sort.

Text can also be changed in the cell itself. Select a cell and press Enter. The field becomes editable. Type the desired text and press Enter again. The changed text will be displayed in red.

For translation, you can use language-mapping file. For more detailed information see Fill Text.

To quickly access the interface text for a specific object, double-click the corresponding row in the "Location" column. A form will be opened that uses this text. You can also view and replace the text in the property palette. If the text was changed outside the edit window, refresh the table to see the change.

Controls located above the table are used to perform various actions and to set window options.

The "Actions" menu allows various operations to be performed on text.

In the Collapse box you can specify how you want to collapse texts in different languages.

If you select No, texts will not be collapsed.

If you select Matching in source language, all items having the same text in the sort-by column will be collapsed. The first column will display a plus sign (+) that can be clicked to expand the group. The first column will contain the following text: <Occurrences: N>" (where N is the number of occurrences). If other columns of this group have different text values, the cells in these columns will display "<Different values>.

If you select Matching in all languages, all items having the same text will be collapsed.
