The easiest way to make your FileMaker apps multi-lingual

Localization can be tricky. EasyTranslate provides a robust framework to make your FileMaker app available in an unlimited number of languages.

Add an unlimited number of keywords and translate them automatically with Google® Translate.

EasyTranslate dynamically manages two sets of global fields by using the BaseElements Plugin: one for User Interface interaction and the other for documents. This allows you to generate documents (like quotes or invoices) in another language than the main UI language.

FAQ

What knowledge is necessary to integrate the add-on?

A basic understanding of FileMaker layouts and scripting is necessary to integrate the add-on into existing databases.

How should I install the add-on after downloading it?

  • Download the add-on files from the website
  • Place the files in the AddonModules folder:
    • Mac: Macintosh HD > Users > [USERNAME] > Library > Application Support > FileMaker > Extensions > AddonModules
    • Windows: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\FileMaker\Extensions\AddonModules
  • Paste the files into the “AddonModules” folder.
  • Restart your FileMaker, the addon should now be available
  • The “library” folder is often hidden on MAC, another option is to go to the “Plugin” folder from FileMaker.
    • FileMaker Pro > Settings… > Plug Ins, then click ‘Reveal Plug-in Folder’.
  • This will take you to the desired location, but a few folders are too deep. You should go back a few steps from there to the path described earlier (it’s the general Extensions > AddonModules folder, NOT the one in the FileMaker Pro folder itself)
