800xA Language conversion from Italian to English
One of our customer currently having a project which is to be migrated from Siemens S7 to 800xA.
Currently the programming is done in Italian and they wish to keep it that way.
Can we convert the code first to English ,develop the logic and then after development, Can we convert the entire logic to Italian? Is there a possibility or should it be done manually only?
Do we have any such references or any contact person details will be greatly helpful.
Thanks in advance for your support.
... but you can still have object names, descriptions, etc reaching the HMI in any language you like as long as you do not use forbidden characters (which depend on choice of PLC, eg AC450 support ÅÄÖ but not ÉÈÊÛÜÁ).
And yes, you can at a later stage develop translations in the HMI.
I recommend studying the System 800xA NLS Users Guide.
To support NLS, you should from start use ”NLS tags” instead of fully translated strings in the HMI design.
