Supported languages and locales
While your forms can only support one locale at a time, you can create forms in 26 languages and over 60 locales.
Selecting fonts for varying locales
When designing forms for another locale, ensure that you use fonts that are readily available to users of that locale. Otherwise, you may find that the text in your form does not display properly and the IBM
® Forms Viewerwill display an error message.
Setting page size
When you design your form, you should be aware that there are many page size standards in use by different countries. The most common international page sizes are set by ISO 216, but not all countries support this standard.
Formatting items for form design
Format properties give you control over how users input requested information into your form and how information on the form is displayed. You can apply format properties to most items in the Palette. Format properties are located in the Properties window that opens when you drop items onto your form.
Creating localized signatures
Signature buttons require localization. Although a valid digital signature displays the signer’s localized certificate information on the signature button, by default, an invalid digital signature displays "invalid"
in English. Localizing the signature button requires the use of the Advanced Designer Perspective and a knowledge of coding XFDL.
