Language configuration and localization


Bizagi Studio presents an integrated runtime environment where you can login to test your automation process. As the building process takes place, this runtime environment, or Work portal, reflects in real time all the changes performed in Bizagi Studio.


The Work portal featured by Bizagi Studio is presented just as end users will access it in a production environment, and it is available in different languages.




This means that all the menus, options and labels in general are automatically available as an out-of-the-box feature for the following languages:










Chinese simplified






Note that Bizagi supports as well any other language not listed above.


For those languages not mentioned above, translations and adjustments are required on your side, though being completely supported (i.e you will need to input the translations for the menus, options and labels used in Bizagi Work portal).



In case you want to overwrite and customize such menus, options and labels in general, for an already-supported language, you may do so too by following the same approach and steps as for languages not supported out-of-the-box.


Enabling more than one language (localization)

Multi-language support in Bizagi considers also the possibility of having separate profiles for users in the different geographical regions (localization).

Often in large enterprises, i.e those having branch offices in different countries, you could have multiple users spread all around the globe while using a same given set of processes.


In such scenarios, though each user views the Work portal in a given language, in order for them to actually read labels regarding processes, business information fields, or organizational definitions in that given language, it would be up to your implementation to input the translations for the names of specific objects of your project (i.e, defining the name of your processes, name of user interface fields, values or parameter entity values, etc for each enabled language).


To view how to configure language and localization, refer to Enabling languages and choosing the default one.




The following images show how Bizagi would localize processes as well as the Work portal, for two different users, each working in his/her preferred language.

The sample Inbox at the top being for an English-speaking user while the one at the bottom for a Spanish-speaking user:




See How to localize processes and objects.



The language chosen by the user, as well as the Global culture set for the entire project has an effect on how dates, currency and times are shown. Refer to Business configuration for more information.


Multi-language support in Bizagi Studio

Bizagi Studio supports different languages for both installation and desktop application.


Install Bizagi Studio in your preferred language

At the start of the Bizagi Studio installation, you will be prompted to select the language of your preference. Once selected, all text will be displayed in the chosen language throughout installation and use of the product.




Changing the language in Bizagi Studio

Once Bizagi Studio is installed you, are able to change the displayed language at any time. Bizagi Studio supports English, Spanish and Japanese. Select a language from the Language drop-down list, located in the upper right corner of Bizagi.  For the change to take effect, please restart Bizagi Studio.
