1 - My PcVue application will be used in several countries, how PcVue can handle the language switch and translation?

PcVue configuration environment (menus, dialog boxes...) can be displayed in 2 selected languages among 12 : German, Spanish, English, French, Italian, Polish, Latvian, Russian, Japanese, Portuguese, simplified and traditional Chinese. Texts in graphics and mimics can be displayed in 2 languages with possibility to switch from one to another in run-time. 

A translation Import/Export Tool allows you to export, modify and import the text strings used in mimics, mimic templates and symbols. The tool is especially useful for large projects and for projects using the Supervisor's language handling capability.
it exports all strings used in the project's mimics, translates them to another language using a third party tool and then imports them back into the project as the strings for that alternate language. Efficient and time saving to ensure all strings in the projects are translated.
