This effort has already begun with the introduction of French language sales presentations in SAGE Online 14.

The products below will have native multilingual support. This means that labels will be translated by humans (not editable). Also, text (other than product data) will be entered by user and fully changeable. Product data is machine-translated and then can be further edited by user.

  • Presentations
  • Orders
  • Email Campaigns - Custom
  • Product Data for key fields (product name, description, colors, etc.)


The products will have machine-translation through browser technology added. This means that the translation will be done using an automated machine translation service. This may cause inaccurate or unexpected translations in some cases. Graphics and language contained within videos or other non-text elements will not be translated. This translation may require that a header bar be present at the top of the website showing the translation information and translation provider.
