Organizations with operations in many different countries often face difficulties with communicating the processes to personnel speaking different languages. Maintaining separate models for different languages is burdensome and prone for errors, and therefore QPR Modeling Client provides a possibility to define translations for model elements

BTN_AR132. On the Model tab of the ribbon, click on Modeling Options. The Modeling Options dialog will open.
