Using Locale Groups to Group Similar Localizations

If you have many localizations that use the same language, you can save time and energy by applying the same translation to each localization at once using Locale Groups.

Creating Locale Groups

To start creating locale groups, you must have the Organization Adminstrator permission level.

In the the Administration dashboard, navigate to the Locale Groups tab.

Locale Group menu item in the adminstration dashboard

Name the locale group and add a description. Add localizations to the locale group by filtering localizations at the top and selecting on a localization in the list. A localization will be added to the group if there is a solid check mark icon beside the name.

Once you have selected all the localizations you want in the group, select the Create Locale Group button.

Using Locale Groups

To apply a locale group to a template, go to the localizations tab in the Dyspatch Visual Editor. Create a new localization and in the dropdown menu, select the locale group by typing in the name matching the group.

By default all locale groups will appear at the top of the list and will automatically update the name to the matching locale group name.
Adding a locale group to a template via a localization

You can now go through the same localization process as outlined in our Localizing a Template guide. Applying a new PO file will now create all localizations for the matching locale group.
