Chinese, Dutch, Estonian, Japanese, Romanian, Lithuanian and Swedish are present in client-facing interfaces only.

From 7.0, XTRF discontinues localization into: English (Canada) and Finnish.

In future releases, XTRF is planning to expand the list of localized languages with Irish for client-facing interfaces and Japanese for the whole UI.

  • “Smart” in “Smart Project”, “Smart Quote” and “Smart Views” will be treated as an XTRF-specific concept and left in English
  • “Customer Portal” has been renamed as “Client Portal”; the term “client” is now used exclusively in the system
  • From now on, the English (US) version will be consistently using the term “vendor”
  • “Virtual Column” has been renamed as “Custom Column”
  • Project/Taks/Job status “Opened” has been changed to “Open”
  • The term “vacation” referring to vendor unavailability has been replaced with “holidays”
