Localizing Webtops in General View

What is webtop localization?

You can customize webtop settings, including the messages displayed when starting and closing the connection, and any error messages, for any language supported on the server. A webtop must be assigned to an access profile to see and customize the webtop for the languages assigned to the access profile. If you customize a webtop that is not assigned to any access profile, you can customize the default set of languages only.
