Text Entry Boxes - change language

Jul 28, 2014

I am trying to change the default text in a text entry box from "no text has been entered" to the french equivalent, but can't seem to find this in the language settings in the player edits, or anywhere else. Any help?

Hi Susan,

Just to confirm - we may be talking about different things. When I look at the player text label options, number 88 is for the text entry default and as a standard it's listed as "type your text here" and if I can the player text language to French it changes to "Entrez votre texte ici"

Are you looking to change the actual variable? When a user begins typing, and the control loses focus (clicking outside the text box) the variable (ie. TextEntry1) will be adjusted to match what the user typed.

Hello Team,

I have a Japanese and course crated in SL360. Where I have text entry filed and when learner entering text into the field its coming in default language (English). Is there any option in storyline to change the language for text entry field? So that learner can type the text in their native language?

Please provide any solution.

Hi Dipu,

Currently, changing the language of a text entry field isn't a feature in Storyline 360, but there might be a workaround by editing JavaScript. Here is a link to a previous conversation regarding that topic.

If you'd like to possibly get a feature added to Storyline 360, the best way to do that is to submit a feature request. If it makes it into our feature roadmap, this conversation will be updated.

Thanks for reaching out!
