Airsweb talks the talk with AVA languages update

Airsweb has announced that its AVA product now supports 90 of the most used languages in the world.

Airsweb german platformAVA is highly configurable, intuitive and has an easy to use interface which empowers users to configure their own audits. Rob Leech said, “We’re not only delighted with the breadth of languages we can now offer customers; we’re delighted with how we have achieved it.”

“In many ways, this update epitomises what we have achieved with AVA: a single code base, modern architecture and user-first design principles enable us to be much more agile than other systems.”

Once enabled, a language can be applied throughout the system to all users. Users can then select from a list of enabled languages which one they would like to use.

“But it doesn’t stop there”, Rob continues, “any label in our system can be updated by system administrators on the fly. So, if you have an internal term that you prefer, then that label can be updated in a matter of seconds by administrators and propagated to all users of that language.”
