    Hi Robert,

    Yes, that is possible.
    Just go to the Config layout and the open the config.js field. You can copy the content to a text editor to have a better overview. And when your finished editing the config, just paste it back in FileMaker.

    In the config you need to find these values and change them:

    monthNames:['January','February','March','April','May','June','July','August','September','October','November','December'],
    monthNamesShort: ['Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sep','Oct','Nov','Dec'],
    dayNames: ['Sunday','Monday','Tuesday','Wednesday','Thursday','Friday','Saturday'],
    dayNamesShort: ['Sun','Mon','Tue','Wed','Thu','Fri','Sat’],

    deutsche Übersetzung:

    monthNames: ['Januar','Februar','März','April','Mai','Juni','Juli','August','September','Oktober','November','Dezember'],
    monthNamesShort: ['Jan','Feb','Mär','Apr','Mai','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sep','Okt','Nov','Dez'],
    dayNames: ['Sonntag','Montag','Dienstag','Mittwoch','Donnerstag','Freitag','Samstag'],
    dayNamesShort: ['So','Mo','Di','Mi','Do','Fr','Sa'],

    Ganztägig HTML:

    allDayText:’all-day’,

    deutsche Übersetzung:

    allDayText:’Ganztägig’,

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Kind regards,
    Jasper

    Hi Robert,

    Can you tell me where you see that field? I don't find it back in my own configuration.
    You can always try to change it yourself and see what happens. Just make a backup before you start experimenting.

    Kind regards,
    Jasper

    Hi Robert,

    That field depends on the calculation of FileMaker Pro and the file was made on a English system.

    To have the field in German, you need to make a clone of the file (via the recovery tool) on a system in German and then import the data back into the clone.
    After that, the calculation engine will report back in German.

    Kind regards,
    Jasper
