MEET MANAGER for Track & Field gives you the flexibility to "translate" every word on every report. This could be used as a language translation from English to French or a way to change the phrase "Discus Throw" to just "Discus". From the Main Menu Bar, click on Set-up / Language Preferences / Keywords or Phrases or Event Names.  An example of a Keyword you might want to change would be "Meter" to "Metre".  An example of a Phrase you might want to change would be "Results Report" to just "Results".  An example of an Event Name you might want to change is "Pole Vault" to "PV".


You may change any of the English phrases or words to the language of your choice.  English, Spanish, French, and German key words and phrases are planned to be an automatic selection, but may not be available in your version. If not, then you can still edit each word or phrase as you wish. To change any word or phrase, click on the word in the "Translate To" column and edit the word.  Because there are space limitations on many of the reports, each word or phrase has a limit on the number of characters it can be. This character limit is listed in the "Size" column to the right of each word in the Language Browser.


The language changes you make are saved in the directory where MM is installed.
