Function Buttons - can they be translated?

This might be a deal breaker for the Indigo layout. The function buttons are in English, and there doesn't appear to be any way to replace the English text with translated text, or replace the function buttons with icons. Am I missing something? Is there any way to address this, or do I need to find another layout?

I just tested it, and it turns out that the buttons automatically translate to the language of the project. I created separate projects in each of the translated languages, and the buttons were fully-translated!

And this might be a deal breaker for the Ocean layout. The function buttons are .svg files, and I don't have Adobe Illustrator. Photoshop does not appear to have .svg as a Save As option. Again, these are English text buttons, and I'll need to either translate them into nine languages, or replace them with icons. I can't navigate to any other file type because it's set to .svg. Is there any way around this? Thanks

The Ocean layout was dropped because of issues. I would avoid any work with that.

For any layout, look in Output > Labels. Where you see Glossary under Common, change it to what you want. Same for the others, they are all there somewhere.

I went into Output>Labels and changed the Glossary label to "Test" and generated, but the button didn't change. It still says Glossary.  Do I need to do something else?

I thought you wanted to generate from one project. Yes from projects with different languages the LNG file will be different.
