Language Support


CPQ Cloud can support more than 100 languages: all supported languages can be enabled. This allows sales users to create Quotes in all customer languages. See the section Supported Languages and Their Language Codes below, for the list of supported languages.

Each site must have a base language. Other supported languages can be added to the language set of a site.

You can designate any language preference from the available language set. The FullAccess user with the same language preference as the base language is responsible for providing translations for users that have different language preferences.

If translations are not available for a language, then the data is displayed in the base language for that language's user.

The list of languages for which a user interface translation is available for both the platform and the reference application is in the What's New document for your release, available in Release Documentation.

Language Support for Commerce Transactions

The system supports users with a language preference that is different from the language that the quote was created in to view and print translated values for parts description and parts extended description fields. Translations for these fields are available in all languages supported by the application, as long as a Host Company FullAccess user with the same language preference as the base language of the site has provided these translations.

Once the translations are carried over to the Commerce List, users can see Part Description and Extended Description fields in the current language (if the translations are present). However, only the user with the same language preference as the one that added the part to the Commerce List is able to add the part to a Transaction.

All the translated values are stored in the Commerce XML file. This XML file is not repopulated with new translation data. The translatable fields in Commerce are:

Translations Bundle

Working with a professional translation company, CPQ Cloud has translated site content into several languages. The list of translated languages is available in the Release Documentation.

All product templates and pre-existing CPQ Cloud content that users receive at implementation is available in translation.

    The addition of the translations bundle does not affect current customer functionality.

    A user is not required to make any selections. Once a site language preference is established, the customer site will appear with translations in place.

Other Translations

An existing CPQ Cloud-provided translation includes all labels and admin pages. To enable further on-screen labels to be translated, ensure that the Text Administration template for that language has been implemented. Contact your Customer Success Manager if this is not the case.
