Translating Your Members Portal (Version 3 & 4)

Your Members Portal is available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish by default. You can also translate it yourself in one or several other languages. 

Translating your Members Portal is a three-step process: 

  1. Downloading Your Translation File
  2. Translating Your Language Tokens 
  3. Sending Your Translation File to Nexudus

Step 1. Downloading Your Translation File 

The first step to translate your Members Portal is to download a translation file. The translation file compiles all the language tokens used in your current version of the Members Portal.

  1. If the side menu is not visible, click  .

  2. Click Settings > Website

  3. Copy the address in the Default Web Address field and paste it in another browser tab. 

    Your address should look similar to this: yourspacename.spaces.nexudus.com 

  4. Add /locales/en/translation.json after the address: 

    Your address should now look similar to this: yourspacename.spaces.nexudus.com/locales/en/translation.json

  5. Press the Enter key. 
    You are redirected to a page that includes all the language tokens of your Members Portal.

  6. Press the Ctrl + S or Command + keys.

  7. Click Save to download the translation file on your device. 

Your translation file is named translation by default.

 

Step 2. Translating Your Language Tokens 

Your translation file is a JSON file that you can edit with any simple text editor. Most Windows and Mac computers already have a built-in simple text editor, namely Notepad in Windows and TextEdit in Mac.

  1. Open either Notepad or TextEdit

  2. Click the File tab and select Open from the drop-down list.

  3. Select the translation file you downloaded during Step 1 and click Open

  4. Edit all your language tokens by replacing the token value with your translation.

    Each language token has two elements in quotation marks separated by a colon. The first element is the language token name and the second element is the token's value.

    In order to translate a language token, you just need to edit the token's value. Don't remove the quotation marks and don't edit the token name.

    If your language token also includes dynamic tokens in double curly braces {{xxx}}, translate the token value quotations marks without translating the dynamic tokens. These dynamic tokens leverage data from your Nexudus account and don't require translation.

  5. Once you've translated all the tokens, click the File tab and select Save

You've successfully edited your translation file and you can move to step 3.

Step 3. Sending Your Translation File to Nexudus

Once you've edited your translation file and it is ready, reach out to our support team at support@nexudus.com.

Make sure you include the following in your message:

  • The new language you want to add to your Members Portal
  • Your edited translation file

If there is no problem with your translation file, your Members Portal translation should be available within a couple of days.
