How can we translate the PDF template?

Currently we have to manually translate the following text when we export a translated PDF. (We are using Scroll Translations.) Is there a way to translate the PDF templates?

  • Cover page
    • "Date", Day, Month, Year, Time, and "URL" 
  • "Contents" heading (TOC)
  • "Page" x "of" y
  • Page number references, for example "see page 3".

Hi Gina,

You can use Velocity to control language specific content in your Scroll PDF Exporter template.

Please have a look at the following page for further information and some examples: Using Velocity in the Custom CSS

Does that help?


Hi Nils,

It looks like this might work!  I'll share it with our wiki system admin.



Hi Gina,

Perfect - great to hear.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch.
