Edit texts in Lodgit Desk

In the Text Management in Lodgit Desk (Administration > Texts) you can find a table with all printable text elements:

editable text elements

The left column lists the text template. They're used for better understanding where the text will appear and what information is given. This text does not change, even if the the right side of the table is edited.

The right column lists the texts that you can edit and adjust to your needs.

 

Add a new language set

In the drop down menu Language you'll find the option Add New Language. This is the option you use to create a new language set to translate:

Add new language

Select the set that you want to use as a template (these texts will appear in the left column). Enter a name for your new language set (e.g. YourCompany1 or Spanish) and select the base language (e.g. English).

After you've clicked "Save" you can edit the texts in the right column to adjust them to your needs. The texts in the left column are a template and can help you understand better where the text will appear on the correspondence.
