Every company has certain formulations that create familiarity and a sense of belonging – and these also belong in your digital home. Internal terminology or formulations from your corporate identity (CI) offer recognition value and should help users find their way around COYO as quickly as possible right from the very first day.
Where can you customize system text?
Defined system text such as "Like" or "... has shared this post with [...]", is known as language keys in COYO and can be customized. These elements, formulations, and texts can be found in Administration under "Languages". You can change the settings in the "Translations (interface)" area.
COYO is supplied with the system languages German, English, and Dutch (from version 23) by default. You can find out how to add further languages here
You require certain permissions for this ("access to Administration" + "Manage languages").
What can you customize and how?
In the area "Translations (interface)", you have the opportunity to customize virtually all of the system text in COYO. This will make it sound more like your own digital home in no time!
The translations apply globally in COYO. This means that they are displayed in the same way for all users. COYO offers an overview, in which you are shown clear "keys" (system language keys), the current translation (standard text), and the customized translation per row. The last field is empty at the start. There’s space for your customizations here.
Search for certain terms
You have the option of searching within the overview for certain terms.
This allows you to customize the texts and formulations that are relevant to you quickly and easily.
In our example, we’re looking for "Workspace", as we know that we’d like to change this wording. The search now shows us all of the hits in the system. We have highlighted the search hits here to make them easier for you to see.
You can see the system text that is currently displayed to users. You can now use your formulations in the area "Customized translation".
If you have already customized text in COYO, you can have this displayed to you. This can be done quickly and easily with just a small tick. Click on "Customized translation" for this.
Which fields relate to the navigation bar?
Do you want to rename workspaces and also customize parts of the navigation? No problem!
If you want to rename an element in the navigation, ideally search for "Navigation" in the translations. In our example, you should find the language key "NAVIGATION.WORKSPACES" in the list.
How can you customize the translations for other languages?
You’ll find a dropdown box on the left-hand side of the area "Translations (interface)". There you can change the language and save different language keys.
These language keys are not global. If you make a change in English, this does not automatically apply in other languages (e.g. in German).
