Best workaround for Language?

until other languages are supported, would the following be a workable workaround?

  1. Create app in English
  2. table column names to stay in English
    2a. Automation to stay in English
  3. Clone the entire app and edit the App's front-end pages and item names to target language.

Is there a way to connect two or more front-end apps to the same database?

Cool idea. If you store all of the app's labels and UI text in a table, then I think you could do this.

Then, anywhere you would normally write text in the UI, just use a data cell that points to the correct table row and column.

If you want to get fancy, you wouldn't even need 2 apps with this approach. A user could toggle which language they prefer.
