How do I copy data from one language to another?

 
In Family Tree Builder, it is possible to choose a DISPLAY language and a DATA ENTRY language.
 
DISPLAY language corresponds to all the buttons and command names in the program. DISPLAY language changes Family Tree Builder’s interface only and will not affect any information that you have manually entered in the tree.
 
DATA language corresponds to the information you enter into the tree yourself. Names, places, notes, etc. are considered DATA.
 
Problems may arise if you change the DISPLAY language along with Primary Data language. This will create the new language for your project, and even if you add data using the same language characters as before, you will do so under a new data language. Thus some information in your project will be added under one language, and some under another language. For example, if you have entered information in one Data language, but not in the other Data language, it may appear as 'unknown' in the online family site.
 
In order to solve this, you need to copy the data from one data language to the other. Please follow these instructions carefully:

1. Open the ‘Languages’ window by going to ‘Tools’ menu in the upper toolbar and selecting the item ‘Languages’.

 

2. On the new window that opens do a right click somewhere on the gray area and select the item ‘Manage Data Languages’ from the menu that pops up.

 

3. A new window opens where you can see the amount of data entered in each data language.

Select the first language in the list and click on the ‘Copy’ button.

 

4. In the new window that opens, select the first language in the drop down box ‘Copy from’ and the second language in the drop down box ‘Copy to’ and click on the ‘Copy’ button on the bottom of the window.

5. You will be asked to take a backup of the project before proceeding, click on the button ‘Yes’.

 

6. A confirmation window will show up. Confirm it by clicking on the ‘OK’ button.

 

7. You will see the ‘Manage Data Languages’ window again. Repeat the steps 3 to 6 for the second data language.

As a result, you will see that the amount of data items in both languages is equal.

 

8. As a last step, save your project and sync it to your website to reflect the changes.
