This topic contains instructions for Conga CLM (Contracts for Salesforce) users. If you are a Conga CLM user and you are looking for information regarding defining template locale, see Defining Template Locale.

Template localization is a feature that allows Template Administrators to define the locale of their templates. Locales can be system defaults or user-defined locales. You can define locale settings at the agreement template and field level. Following are some of the important points about how localization works:

  • At the template level:

    • You can specify the Locale and choose the Currency Format, Date Format, and configure Number and Currency Precision for the whole template when you create a template. 

    • You can also change the locale of a template at check-in. 

  • At the template field level:

    • You can use the Fields tab to define locale for Number, Currency, Date, and Precision fields. 

    • You can also use the Fields tab to define Currency Format, Date Format, Currency Precision, and Number Precision for fields.
  • Field-level locale formatting takes precedence over template-level locale formatting.
  • For a field, if locale formatting is not defined at field-level, the template formatting is applied.
  • If an agreement template has no locale defined, the default locale—English (US) is applied.

To learn how to change field level locale, refer to Changing Field Level Locale.
