This article is about “How to set up your language” in PowerSearch.
Language Translation is possible for general elements like the “search” button and for operators like “equals”. The standard languages are English and German.
In this article, you will learn how to add translations for general elements in a new language.
With only a few steps, you will manage to do it.
Dynamics 365 -> Advanced Settings -> Settings -> “MSCRM-ADDONS” area -> Products
Figure 1: Dynamics 365
Next open “PowerSearch”
Figure 2: PowerSearch
Here please open the record named “PSCLanguages”

In the next step copy the content of the “KeyValue” field into an XML-editor (at least into a notepad).
It is recommended to create a copy!

The XML consists of two main areas “Static” and “Operators”. In “Static” you find translations for PowerSearch buttons, error messages and so on. In “Operators” you find translations of condition Operators.

Example 1: To add a Spanish translation for the “Search” button (the language code for Spanish is 3082):
Look for the id “btsearch” and add a new “tl” sub node with the Spanish translation to it.

Example 2: To add a French translation for the “Equals” operator (the language code for French is 1036):

Note: As shown in the above examples you can add your translations to all elements.
Finally copy the changed XML back to the settings record in Dynamics 365 and save it. After reloading PowerSearch the new translations will be used.
