    Hi C1,

    is ist possible to localize the dialog that is shown when exporting a C1FlexReport (shown in C1FlexViewer) to PDF?
    For me, it is english, on an german system.

    Best regards

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Our developers are planning to localize C1.Win.C1Document to German but there is no ETA for now. But they can localize this Save as PDF form if you can translate the form strings to German by yourself. If this option is possible for you then please let us know so that we can request the developers for the file with strings to localize.

    OK, those are the strings translated as best as I can. There are some questions, and for the "Viewer preferences" I am not sure whether those really work. Could you take a look at it (questions below)?

    "Save as PDF" => "Als PDF speichern"

    Groupbox "General":
    Groupbox title "General" => "Allgemein"
    Checkbox "PDF/A compatible (level 2B)" => "PDF/A-kompatibel (Level B)"
    Checkbox "Embed True Type fonts" => "TrueType-Schriften einbetten"
    Checkbox "Use compression" => "Komprimierung verwenden"
    Checkbox "Generate outlines" => "Gliederung erzeugen"

    Groupbox "Password security":
    Groupbox title "Password security" => "Passwortsicherheit"
    Label "Document open (user) password" => "Kennwort zum Öffnen des Dokuments"
    Label "Confirm document open password" => "Kennwort bestätigen"
    Label "Permissions (owner) password" => "Berechtigungskennwort"
    Label "Confirm permissions password" => "Berechtigungskennwort bestätigen"
    I picked the textbox from the screenshots on the german Adobe page: https://helpx.adobe.com/de/acrobat/how-to/password-protect-pdf.html?set=acrobat--fundamentals--secure-pdf
    Groupbox "Encryption level" => "Verschlüsselungsstufe"

    Groupbox "Document restrictions":
    Groupbox title "Document restrictions" => "Dokumentberechtigungen"
    Checkbox "Allow printing" => "Drucken zulassen"
    Checkbox "Allow content copying or extraction" => "Kopieren von Inhalten zulassen"
    Checkbox "Allow content editing" => "Bearbeitung von Inhalten zulassen"
    Checkbox "Allow annotations editing" => "Kommentieren zulassen" (I assume that this is this feature? https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/acrobat/how-to/annotate-pdf-online.html - german page: https://acrobat.adobe.com/de/de/acrobat/how-to/annotate-pdf-online.html)

    Button "Document Info" => "Dokumentinfo"
    Button "Output range" => "Ausgabebereich"
    Button "Viewer preferences" => "Ansichteinstellungen"

    Checkbox "Open generated document" => "Erzeugtes Dokument öffnen"
    Button "Cancel" => "Abbrechen"

    Form "Document Information":

    Title "Document Information" => "Dokumentinformationen"
    Label "Title" => "Titel"
    Label "Author" => "Autor"
    Label "Manager" => "Manager"
    Label "Operator" => at least when exporting a word document, this results in "Zuletzt geändert von" (last modified by)
    Label "Company" => "Firma"
    Label "Subject" => "Betreff"
    Label "Comment" => "Kommentar"
    Label "Producer" => don't know, not supported by PDF or word. Might bei "Ersteller"
    Label "Creation time" => "Erzeugedatum"
    Label "Revision time" => "Prüfdatum"
    Label "Keywords" => "Stichwörter"
    Label "Keywords must bei delimited by spaces" => "Stichwörter müssen mit Leerzeichen getrennt werden".
    Label "Fields unsupported by the targt format are disabled" => "Nicht vom Zielformat unterstütze Felder sind deaktiviert"
    Button "Cancel" => "Abbrechen"

    Form "Pages":

    Title "Pages" => "Seiten"
    Radiobutton "All" => "Alle"
    Radiobutton "Pages" => "Seiten"
    Label "from" => "von"
    Label "to" => "bis"
    Radiobutton "Pages list" => "Seitenzahlen"
    Checkbox "Inverted order" => "Umgekehrte Reihenfolge"
    Button "Cancel" => "Abbrechen"

    Form "Viewer preferences":

    Title "Viewer preferences" => "Ansichteinstellungen"

    Groupbox "Page layout" => "Seitenlayout"
    Radiobutton "Default" => "Standard"
    Radiobutton "Single page" => "Einzelne Seite"
    Radiobutton "One column" => "Einzelne Seite, fortlaufend"
    Radiobutton "Two columns, ..." => it seems these two options do not work as expected: Acrobat reader displayed two pages wide, scrolling. So the result was the same for both options.
    In my german reader, I have an option "Deckblatt in Zweiseitenansicht einblenden", which seems to be the same as "odd-numbered pages to the right", but this menu item is not checked when opening a PDF generated with this setting.
    Do those page layout options work at all with Acrobat Reader?
    Thus I cannot translate it properly.
    But probably your options can be translated to:
    "Two columns, odd-numbered pages on the left" => "Zwei Seiten"
    "Two columns, odd-numbered pages on the right" => "Zwei Seiten, Deckblatt einblenden"

    Groupbox "Page mode" => "Seitenmodus"
    Radiobutton "Document outline visible if available" => "Dokumentgliederung einblenden wenn verfügbar"
    Radiobutton "Document outline and thumbnail images not visible" => "Dokumentgliederung und Seitenminiaturen ausblenden"
    Radiobutton "Document outline visible" => "Dokumentgliederung einblenden"
    Radiobutton "Thumbnail images visible" => "Seitenminiaturen einblenden"
    Radiobutton "Full screen" => "Vollbild"

    Checkbox "Hide toolbar", "Hide menubar", "Fit window", "Center window" => it seems those don't work with Acrobat Reader.

    What about a discount on the next license renewal for this translation work ;-)?

    Best regards

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Thank you for sharing the information, we have forwarded this to the developers.

    Well, as you provided an excellent code sample on another issue, this balances ;-).

    I did not translate all options, as I was not sure whether they all work. If the developers decide that they want to keep them, come back to me for the missing translations.

    Best regards

    I tested it with .492, and most of the PDF options are translated. Seems you did not use my suggestions ;-).

    The layout is not optimal, some texts don't fit in the buttons (I know, German texts break every control layout...).
    In the attached screenshot I marked two labels where the text seems to miss a word (e.g. "Kennwort für das Öffnen des Dokuments "), and the two "confirm password" labels have the same texts as the label for the first password, see my translations suggestions above.

    The "Viewer preferences" dialog is not translated at all. In my previous post, I made suggestions for most options, and I asked whether they all work as expected.

    When saving to RTF, there is a text "Ausgelagert" that I don't understand. What does this mean - what does it say in english?

    Best regards

    hi Wolfgang,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have raised your concern to the development team and will let you know the updates soon.

    Ausgelagert stands for Paged which described the following property:
