Learn how to customize your ebook app’s language. 

While Kotobee offers free professional translations to 19 different languages, you may require more personalized or customized translations to better fit your users.

  • If you’re addressing children and want to use more friendly and less complicated wording.

  • If your language of choice isn’t supported.

  • If you feel other wording may be more appropriate for your industry. For example, instead of Next chapter, you may prefer Advance forward.

That’s where Customize language can help you out.

Customize language

To start customizing your language:

  1. Click on the Customize tab at the top header.

  2. Choose the Components tab.

  3. Scroll down to Default language.

  4. Choose your preferred language from the drop-down menu.

  5. Click on Customize language.

  • A popup will open with the language editor, it has all the potential words (labels, commands, and messages) in the user’s interface and an empty space for you to write your preferred word choice.

  • Write your choice, then click on Save.

Note: You may save individual language customizations to your computer by clicking on Save to file, then load them back in using Load from file.

Filtering translations

You may only want to edit one particular translation, but it can be too overwhelming to go through all of those words to find what you want. To make it easy, you can search for that word or phrase using the empty space next to Filter in the lower right part of the language editor.

Resetting translations

After applying your edits, if you happen to return to the language editor for the same translation language, it will show a new option: Reset translations

This will basically reset all your edits to the default translations provided by the software.
