Content Translations

Section
Top

You can translate some document elements in your Office documents using a translation function in officeatwork placeholders so that your placeholders dynamically adopt to the chosen document language.

Designer

You can connect the Designer app with a translations list hosted in your SharePoint tenant.

Create a TRANSLATIONS list

You can create new or use any existing SharePoint list in your Microsoft 365 Tenant to act as your translations source for your officeatwork Apps. The only requirements you need to know are the following:

Connect TRANSLATIONS list

To connect a SharePoint list as your translations source click on the Manage button on the 'Content Translations' card. Paste the URL of your SharePoint list into the SharePoint List URL field. Click on 'Verify' button to verify the URL. Click on Save to complete the step.

Please note:

The Admin Center needs a SharePoint read permission to validate your SharePoint List URL. In case that permission has not yet been granted you will see a 'Connect' button. Press that and complete the Grant flow to allow the Admin Center to read from your SharePoint tenant.

Manage TRANSLATIONS

You can manage your translations using the native SharePoint UI for editing SharePoint lists.

Using TRANSLATIONS

You can use the translations via the translate() function. Here is an example:

{{ translate('TranslationKey') }}

Conditions

Conditions can help you isolate parts (or the entire signature template) for specific scenarios. You can for instance show a different signature for mail messages and appointment messages, internal or external mail recipients, HTML or TXT formatted messages etc.

Please be aware, that any part of the signature that is not encapsulated by a specific condition will be visible for all scenarios.

Use the 'Mail Conditions' menu to insert Nunjucks templating engine logic to differentiate between scenarios.

Here is the list of the available conditions:

Please note:

All of the above listed conditions are subject to your Outlook version supporting the condition. Check our Mail Signature Compatibility article in our help center for more detials.

mail.isMessage, mail.isAppointment

With this condition options you can create a specific signature for mail messages and appointments. mail.isMessage will return True for all email messages (new, reply, and forward). mail.isAppointment will return True for appointments only.

mail.isNew, mail.isForward, mail.isReply

With this condition options you can create a specific signature or parts of a signature that will apply (render) for new, forward or reply messages only. mail.isNew will return True for new email messages. mail.isForward will return True for forwarded email messages. mail.isReply will return True for reply email messages

mail.isHtml, mail.isPlainText

With this condition options you can create a specific signature or parts of a signature that will apply (render) for text or HTML messages only. mail.isHtml will return True for HTML formatted email messages. mail.isPlainText will return True for text only formated email messages.

mail.isInternal, mail.isExternal

With this condition option you can create a specific signature or parts of a signature that will apply (render) for internal or external audiences only. As soon as one recipient is not from within your organization the constant mail.isExternal will return True. As long as all recipients are from within your organization the constant mail.isInternal will return True.

Please note:

It can take up-to 30 minutes for new users that got added to your organization to get recognized as internal recipients. Please also note that by default officeatwork will return true for isExternal and false for isInternal if the condition is not supported by your platform or there are no recipients defined.

Language (coming soon)

You can use the locale.code constant to evaluate the chosen language for your mail Signature.

locale.code is set according to the following priorities:

  1. Choice the user made via the Outlook Mail Signature add-in.

  2. Outlook application language if found in the list of supported languages defined in the mail signature template. The matching is done culture tolerant, meaning a match is made if only the language is matched without a matching culture setting.

  3. User's Microsoft 365 language if found in the list of supported languages defined in the mail signature template. The matching is done culture tolerant, meaning a match is made if only the language is matched without a matching culture setting.

  4. First language in the list of languages defined in the mail signature template.

Here some possible sample values:

Images

The images panel will allow you to upload images that can be used in your mail signature template.

Add
