You can read more about the translations through our localization efforts. We are always keen to know if we are getting the translations correct or if there is a language we should translate Creately in to let us know what you think.
Entering Non-English Alphabet Characters and Text
When we are testing text input in Creately we use the Windows keyboard for the language we are testing. This allows us to test a very wide range of languages and ensure that text input works successfully.
We know that some users use Google IME, Yahoo Input or Microsoft IME. We have had some issues with these input methods although they do generally work. If you have issues please let us know and give us all the steps to recreate the issue, especially important are details of how to create meaningful text using your chosen input method, we are not experts in every language knowing what to enter to experience the issue can be difficult without your guidance.
Inside Creately you can enter non-English characters in pretty much every area of the application from diagram names to descriptions through to text boxes and comments. However, the in-app feedback form only accepts English as that's our primary language and we need to be able to understand your feedback :-)
Setting Your Language in Creately
All versions of Creately will look at the default language of your operating system and use that as the default language to display the application in. It defaults to English when we don't have a translation for your language. It is not possible to manually set the language used inside Creately independently of the operating system. The exception to this is Creately Desktop which allows the user to set the language through the Preferences -> Basics dialogue as shown below. Select the checkbox next to the custom language option and then select your preferred language from the drop-down menu, closing the preferences dialogue will save the change. When making a language change you need to restart Creately Desktop for the change to take effect.
