Internationalization of HTML templates

The Source button opens the editor. The contents of the templates for the individual languages are defined in separate elements with a lang attribute with the abbreviation of the language as value.

The system templates contain an English and a German version of the corresponding message as standard. Internationalization is achieved using lang attributes attached to certain HTML elements. 

After selecting one of the existing end pages, you can view its structure by clicking on the Source button. In the editor window that opens you can see that the individual languages are always available in a separate <div> element with the language as attribute (e.g. <div lang="en">). More languages can be easily added by adding another <div>- element with the corresponding language abbreviation in the lang attribute on the same level as the existing languages and then inserting the desired content for that language into it.

Note that the entire content of the template will be displayed if the language used to submit a form does not match any of the defined languages.
