Calculated text field in multiple laguages


#1

I order to have user-readable data in drop down list, I created ‘title’ field in the dictionary and want to calculate it automatically based on few other fields. My application has to support few languages. Please suggest the best way calculate ‘title’ field in multiple languages simultaneously.

The best way is to calculate it on the client-side ( in form logic) and store to database - in this case you don’t worry about language at all.
Also, we recommend allow user to change title manually because there are different rules how to create a Title from the Firs-Last name for different languages and countries.

See how we did it for Organization employee - [org_employee sources].
