Frequently asked questions

Can I translate the labels/text in the notification email?

Yes, this is possible with a few additional steps:

  1. Go and search file: vtigerfolder/languages​​/xx_xx/ITS4YouMention.php
    – xx_xx = language folder, for example de_de
  2. Open the file and change the labels translations:
    – example: ‘LBL_MENTIONED_YOU’ => ‘your translation.’,
  3. Save the changes

The received email will be translated in the same language as the user has set in Vtiger CRM.
User 1 language in Vtiger is German, and you changed translation for de_de = he will receive an email with this translation.
