  2. Go to the App Settings tab and under Advanced Settings, select Localization.
  3. Enter localized language terms for any of the following items:
    • App Info tab- App description.
    • Form tab- Fields in the form.
    • Views tab- Views in the app.
    • Process Management tab- Status and Action button names.
    • Graphs tab-  Names for graphs.
    • Categories tab- Names for categories.
  4. Click Save and Update App. 

Please note, if the user's browser is in a language other than what is supported, the Default description and names are displayed. 

Additionally, system-wide Time Zone and default language can be set in Users & System Administration. Users will be able to change their Time Zone and default language in their Account Settings.
