800xA translation of Object/Device description
In 800xA V5.1 Rev. "D" with AC800M I try to translate the Object/Device description with NLS strings. We use the PCDevice library 5.8.
I did following steps:
1. Define the NLSID string in the NLS Resource Manager.
2.Connect the defined NLSID string with the Description connection.
3. Download to controller and made a name upload.
The string NLSID_test was not changed to the local language.
The same steps with the alarm message, this works properly.
Is it possible to translate the Object/Device description?
If yes, how to do it?
Thank you in advance!

The Name and Description of the Object doesn't use the NLS Resource Manger (or you could argue the Name Uploader doesn't support it...), so instead you have to define the different NLS strings on the "Name" Aspect itself.
If you open the Config View of any Name Aspect, you'll see the "NLS" Button on the top right side twice for Name and Description Fields and this opens the Dialog where you can set different Languages (probably you need to have something like System Engineer Role in order to access it).
