How to internationalize your Apps?
From the App perspective, you can use the App Message Hash Variable to make sure that your app is internationalized.
Messages is used to manage customised locale messages and is particularly useful when you need to use a custom label in your forms, for adhering to certain locale.
Managing messages at Application level should only be done if you need to use custom messages that are not applicable to other applications.

How to Import Translated Messages Into Joget Workflow
Let's take the Korean language as an example. After downloading the .po files, follow these steps to import the translated messages:
- Navigate to System Settings > Manage Messages.
- Click on the "Import PO File" button.
- Browse through for the .po file that you downloaded, then upload it.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the rest of the .po files.
To enable the Korean language display, navigate to System Settings > System Setup, look for the System Locale option, then select the relevant locale which, for this example, is ko. Click on the "Submit" button; the selected locale (language) will take immediate effect.
For other languages, please refer to the corresponding locale as written above.

Setting the locale on-the-fly
You may append the parameter named "_lang" to override the current locale that you are seeing. For example, you can set the locale to Chinese by setting "_lang=zh_CN".
To reset, simply set the parameter "_lang" value to empty.
