Localized Text

Each text string that you see in the EmpowerID web UI is represented by a Locale Key. Developers use the Locale Key for titles, descriptions, and labels in the UI, and the Localized Text page allows you to customize the default text and to add translations for any languages you support. 

The Default Value of a localized string is what appears by default, in the en, or English locale.

To customize a string

In this example, the company already uses the word "recertification" extensively in regards to keeping up with educational and certification requirements for their industry. Therefore the company wants to substitute the word "attestation" for "recertification."

  1. In the Navigation Sidebar, expand Admin, then Miscellaneous, and click Localized Text.
  2. On the Localized Strings tab, search for "recertification." In the results, all of the items in the Key Entry Name column show the word, but the Default Value column is the text that we need to change.



  3. Click the Key Entry Name link to open the one you want to customize, for example, RecertificationRevokesAllDescription.
  4. On the Locale Key Details page that appears, click the Edit button.



  5. In edit mode, on the General tab, change the Default Value field, replacing "recertification" with "attestation."



  6. Click Save.
