Setup for Non-English Languages
Library > How To > Non-English Setup  
It is possible to change the language of the prompts shown in the search results. This document describes the process and which languages are currently available.

This tutorial is not a web/html primer and assumes that you already know how the process of "web surfing" is accomplished (i.e. a browser requests a page from a server which then returns the page to be viewed), what an HTML "form" is and how it works, and what a link "target" is. If you are not familiar with these concepts please read a basic web/html primer.

Overview(top)

To change the language of the search result prompts it is necessary to add an additional html tag to your search panel. This html tag specifies the language for the prompts.

As an example, if you wanted to change your search result prompts to Spanish, you would add the tag:
   <input type="hidden" name="lang" value="es">
to your search panel. This tag must be placed after the search panel's initial
   <form ...
tag and before it's ending
   </form>
tag, otherwise it will not work.

We recommend using a text editor to modify your search panel as many HTML editors modify added html code without notifying you, resulting in unpredictable results.

If the language code ("es", "fr", "it", etc) is not recognized or supported, English prompts will be used.

Note that currently the web search results always show English prompts.
