Providing localized versions of data in certain fields in your data records

In the data browser page, you can customize how Talend MDM Web UI displays the data in certain fields in your data records depending on the user locale, for example to provide localized text for different languages.

Before you begin

  • The MDM server is already launched.
  • You have been assigned a role with the appropriate user authorization and access rights.
  • At least one view has been created in Talend Studio. For more information, see Creating a View.
  • An MDM administrator has made the element localizable when creating the data model.

About this task

The following example shows how to provide a localized version of a field in a master data record.


  1. Search and list the records of interest in the Master Data Browser page.
  2. Open the data record for which you want to localize a field.
  3. All fields that you can localize are indicated by an Edit the multiLanguage field button . Click this button for the field you want to localize.
    The Edit the multiLanguage field dialog box opens.
    Information noteNote: If you simply enter your text in the appropriate field and save the record, this provides a localized version for your current locale without you having to open the Edit the multiLanguage field dialog box.
  4. Click the button to add a new language instance for the field in question.
    Select the language from the drop-down list, enter the appropriate text in the Value column, and then click Save.


  5. Add as many language instances as you require, and then click Close.
    You can test your changes by changing the locale in the top-right corner of the screen.
