BriefBuilder comes in multiple languages and you can choose the language for your model when creating it. It can be, however, that you want to switch language after you have created the project model. E.g. you started out in Danish, but want to change to English because you are aiming for a European tender.
This is something that is not officially facilitated by our software. There are two work-arounds however.
The first option is that you create a new, empty project model, in the preferred language, and then import all your project data into that new model. Please note however that such a import can be quite tricky. This solution works best for models in which all requirements are linked to a single tree (typically the spaces tree).
In the second option, you change the model’s language by making an adjustment to the model’s JSON export.
Step 1: you make a JSON export of your model
Step 2: you open the JSON file in Notepad (or similar) on your computer
Step 3: you find the following text: “language“
Step 4: you change the existing abbreviation to the one for the preferred language (“nl” for Dutch, “en” for English, “de” for German, “fr” for French, “dk” for Danish, “no” for Norwegian).
Step 5: you save the file
Step 6: you import the adjusted JSON file in your environment
When having done so, you will notice that all the ‘software language’ (the headers, the prompts, the buttons, …) has changed.
