Creating a Localization in a Dyspatch Template Editor

Create a localization

Navigate to the Localizations tab in the template editor to create a new localization. Select a language and give the localization a name your team will recognize. This name is for your reference only and can follow any naming convention that works for your team.

We recommend creating a localization for the original language used in the template. This way when the localizations for a template are accessed via the API, all of the desired localizations are present, including the language in which the template was originally built.
