Although SampleDB was primarily developed in English, it now supports two ways of using it with other languages:
SampleDB itself has been translated to German and can be translated in other languages as well in the future.
Object metadata fields, actions, instruments, groups and other user-generated content can contain translations for various languages, defined by the administrator.
If you wish to contribute to a translation of SampleDB, see the SampleDB contribution guide.
By default, a SampleDB instance will have English and German as built-in languages for user input, with only English enabled. This way all text fields will appear as they were before this change. If you enable German input or create a new language that is enabled for input, many fields for which a translation would be reasonable will offer users to add a translation in the newly enabled language. When a user uses a language for which some content does not provide a translation, the content will be shown in English instead.
