How to Translate APEX Internal Messages? (Doc ID 2576994.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (APEX) - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


What are APEX Internal Messages?
APEX Internal Messages are messages displayed by APEX engine in APEX applications, such as default errors (e.g. validations, invalid login credentials) or report labels (search button, pagination links, IR action menu etc.). Those messages are listed in APEX documentation (Managing Application Globalization Chapter) - each of them has code and default English value.

For example if you install only English version of APEX, then after login error you will see message "Invalid login credentials", which refers to INVALID_CREDENTIALS code.

If you want to translate it to different language, you need to install APEX in one of 10 supported languages (German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese) or translate it by yourself in Application Builder > Shared Components > Text Messages (you can find detailed instructions in APEX doc). If you have more than one translation, APEX engine will set current language based on globalization settings (Application Builder > Shared Components > Globalization Attributes).
