Globalization Overview

The Cornerstone system can be displayed in various languages. This allows users to access the many features of the site in the language of their choice. With the globalization of Cornerstone, your organization can effectively offer all of Cornerstone's functionality and training in a user's home language, making the experience and training relevant and meaningful for your users, regardless of their location.

Language Packs require activation at an additional charge. Cornerstone also provides support for Conversion Rates, Currency, and international date formats. If you are interested in these options, first contact your Client Sales Representative to purchase one or more language packs. Once purchased, submit a case to Global Product Support (GPS) to activate the newly purchased language packs.

Language Pack Rules

When a language pack is purchased and enabled, the following rules apply:

  • All static text is translated into the available language selected when purchased.
  • Manually entered (dynamic) text must be translated and entered by the client. The option to translate text in the system is often noted with a Translate icon .
  • Cornerstone supports foreign characters and text but does not automatically display these characters unless configured.
  • Browse for Training Subjects have equivalencies so that new subjects can be created in other languages. Courses already in the English version of the subject automatically map to the new subject.
  • System searches default to user's language preference, but searches may be expanded to include other languages.
