Language Mapping

Pre-requisite: The user must configure the Language Mapping part using the Admin module of the Platform, before accessing the Language Mapping functionality for a Dashboard.

Check out the given walk-through on how to map multiple languages with Designer.

  • Select a saved dashboard using the Designer plugin.

  • Access the Title properties of the dashboard and make sure that the title description is provided in the “{}” brackets (if not then modify it accordingly)

Please Note:

a. Use “{}” brackets for all the descriptive text that you want to translate by the newly created Language Mapping. E.g., Tooltip, Description of X and Y-Axis, etc.

b. Use the Data Set Properties to Configure the Categories and Series description for the language mapping, as shown below:
