TouchPoint’s Translations feature allows for translating words/phrases into other words/phrases for a given language. Users can then select the appropriate language they want to see and TouchPoint will display those words/phrases based on the user’s selection. English and Spanish are currently supported and additional languages will be added in the near future.

Selecting A Language

Users can switch languages by clicking on the Earth icon on the top right of the Main Menu and then selecting the appropriate language from the Available Languages section.

Updating Translations

A user with the Admin role can make changes to translations for a particular language by navigating to Admin > Advanced > Translations.

Translation Files (Legacy)


This method of translating words/phrases in TouchPoint is used on the older (legacy) pages in TouchPoint that have not yet been updated to our new architecture. We will continue to update these pages to support the new way of managing Translations mentioned above.

Translations files can be used to change (translate) the wording on certain labels within TouchPoint. The files are named with a two-letter culture code and can be used to translate labels to a different language as determined by the settings on the user’s computer or mobile device. For a list of supported culture codes, see this Microsoft site.

But you can also use the translation file to change labels from one English word or phrase to another. There should already be a file named Translations.en.xml in Special Content > Text Content. You can modify this file to change label wording on various TouchPoint pages. The example file below changes the label on the Contributions tab (Giving > Contributions) to “Donations” rather than “Contributions”.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <string name="Contributions">Donations</string>

Make sure your entries are between the <translations> and </translations> tags and follow the formatting of the sample, with the string name of the default label in quotations and the replacement text between the <string name="oldlabel"> and </string> tags.

In general, you will enter the default label in the <string name= > tag, but one exception is changing the Member label at Profile > Member. Because that is such a commonly-used word in TouchPoint, to change that label, use <string name="ProfileTabMember">. For example, the sample file below changes that label from “Member” to “Partner”.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <string name="ProfileTabMember">Partner</string>

The following code includes all of the available options that can be translated.
