3 Examples to create a multilingual Filemaker solution

 

To create a multilingual solution in Filemaker seems to need additional efforts. The benefits, though, are many, even for single language solutions:

  • All texts are managed in a single table
  • Unlimited languages possible
  • Multilingual interfaces
  • Multilingual value lists

At the german speaking Filemaker Conference 2016 in Salzburg, I have shown 3 possible approaches for creating a multilingual software with Filemaker. The example file can be downloaded here. These variations are shown:

  1. Multilingual solution with the help of global fields
  2. Multilingual solution with the help of global variables
  3. Multilingual solution with the help of a global repetition field.
