When you create a name for a datafield, you will do this in the language of your choice. However, it may be desirable to provide translations for this name if you are in the habit of uploading clauses in multiple languages. That is where aliases come in.
Aliases allow you to give additional names to datafields and tie them to a specific language. This allows you to refer to the same datafield with different names. When you, for example, use the English alias of a datafield in the Dutch version of a clause, you will be given the opportunity to automatically “translate” the English alias to the Dutch alias. In the example below, this can be done by clicking “to nl”
