Hi Colin

Are you trying to use Hindi for the FileMaker screen text, or in the fields
where the user adds data?

Option 1

I add a global field example _Text Header to the layout using a "Merge
Field", then I use a calculation to equal the value assigned and assign
that value from a field with the name I want the Merge field to contain.
Then on a layout I call the language translation screen, I collect both the
merge field and the field that will get the text I want to use on the
layout. When you type the language (any language) in the text field, the
merge global will display that text.

Option 2

If you want all of the text in the program in a different language, set the
language text for FileMaker (Preferences, Fonts, then select the text font
to be used.) If you have the original install DVD the language files are on
that DVD. If you don't have the disc, go to FileMaker.com/support and
download the country language fonts you want to use.

Option 3

Localization of the OS, by setting the language for your OS to the language
required, all test will be set to the local country.

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
