How to switch language in button names?


Recommended Posts

Hi Interroga,
In order to apply language change on HMI elements follow the next steps:
#1. Add an HMI element to the HMI screen.  For example, I added a "Fixed text" with the value "Hello".
#2. In "Solution Explorer" -> "Languages"  add an additional language of your choice to the application. For example, I added "Korean".
#3. Press on the new language you added  and the translation menu will appear:


        The "Hello" marked in red is the value of the "Fixed text" element when the language of the PLC is Korean. Let's edit the value:


   #4. Create a change language Action on order to change the PLC language  to Korean. For example, I created 2 actions, one for English & one for Korean.
           When the Action's linked BIT is set (via Ladder, button click...) the PLC language will change accordingly. Example:


      Now on our "Fixed text" HMI element the text will be "여보세요" and not "Hello" because Korean is the active language,
