Configuring language settings for all users

The Editor allows you to define the different languages that diagrams can be translated into. Whenever a diagram is created or edited, you can e.g. translate labels of modeling elements and element documentation to each language that is defined in the workspace. Your readers will then have the option to choose the suitable language on their own.

Visitors of Collaboration Hub also have the possibility to switch between languages that are defined in the workspace. However, in the Software-as-a-Service version of Signavio Process Manager, this is only possible if the publishing module for Microsoft® SharePoint® is licensed in your workspace.

Follow these steps to extend the language scope of your workspace:

  1. Open the Explorer and click Setup, then Define languages.
The 'define languages' menu entry in the Explorer's top drop-down menu
