Partition is Multilingual

Indicate if this partition is intended to use more than one language.

In a multilingual partition, a set of languages can be defined which are then available for use in the partition. Partition multilingual attributes must be defined for each language including: the language code and description, the type of language support required (if DBCS or RLTB), and the translations for menu options and functions key descriptions.

In Visual LANSA a partition is automatically defined as multilingual with a default language created for the partition.
