Configuring Web Cultures

If you need to add language translation capability for your web templates or kiosk pages (menu text, menu items, and web text items), then you must configure web cultures. Each web culture represents a foreign language for which translations must be provided in VEMS or EMS Kiosk.

To configure web cultures

1. On the EMS menu bar, click Configuration > Web > Web Cultures.

The Web Cultures window opens. This window displays all the web cultures that are currently configured in your EMS database.

2. Click New.

The Web Culture dialog box opens. By default, the culture is set to English (United States).

3. In the Description field, enter a name or description for the new web culture.


The description can be a maximum of 50 characters, including spaces.

4. On the Culture dropdown list, select the appropriate culture (the language into which the menu text, menu items, and web text items will be translated).

5. Click OK.

The Web Culture dialog box closes. You return to the Web Cultures window with the newly configured web culture automatically selected.


After you configure a web culture, it is displayed on the Translations tab in various configuration areas in EMS.
