CDOL - change display/search language

#1

Post by georggreindl »

Hello,

I need CDOL quite frequently in my calling. Most of the times when searching for functions I need to search using the English term. However, the display language is German and I have nowhere found a setting to change that. Therefore, it is really difficult to search because I just know the English term for the calling, but the system uses German.

Does anyone know how I can change that?

thanks,
Georg

Not a direct answer to your issue, but you could try something like Google Translate to get the term or phrase, until someone can give a definitive answer.

What is the language setting for your computer/browser? I ask because your profile indicates you are in Austria. You can change the browser language to English just before using CDOL. When you are done with that you can change the language back to German.

If your computer/browser is configured for German and you want to do your searches in English without changing your browser language you will probably have to use Biggles' recommendation.

Tried that and it seems to work! :) Thanks. That also seems to confirm that there is no setting in CDOL to change the language.

That is correct CDOL uses the browser language as its setting. Back when it was written that was the standard.
