It is possible to manage a list of natural languages in the CDP4™. These natural languages can be referred to by their natural language code in various concepts. This allows the users of the CDP4™ to localize these concepts. The natural languages are managed in the Natural Language browser.
After connecting to a data source, open the Natural Language browser by selecting the * Natural Languages* icon on the Directory tab. This will open the Natural Language browser that contains a list of all the natural languages available in the specified data source. These are given with several attributes:
name of the identified natural language in British English1
language code as specified in ISO 639-1 "Part 1: Alpha-2 code" or ISO 639-2 "Part 2: Alpha-3 code"2
name of this NaturalLanguage expressed in the identified natural language itself1
The natural languages can be used e.g. on the standard tabs of the Aliases, Definitions, and Hyperlinks for applicable concepts. The natural language code is used to indicate in which language a specific entry is expressed.
To create a new natural language, select the Create a Natural Language icon or in the context menu select Create a Natural Language.
Provide the (official) Name, Language Code, and Native Name, and click Ok.
In principle it should not often be required to edit natural language entries. Editing natural languages is possible however, e.g. to correct mistakes. To do this, select the Edit Natural Language icon or in the context menu select Edit.
It is possible to edit the Name Language Code, and/or Native Name. After making the required changes, click Ok.
