Metadata Server is an optional component of SuperSERVER that you can use to add additional information to your databases. There are two main uses for Metadata Server:

Multilingual Tables

You can use Metadata Server to create multilingual tables. Users can switch between languages in SuperCROSS:

Table in English:

User Switches Language:

Table in French:

SuperCROSS is also supplied with several language translations for the user interface. Users can change the interface language by selecting an option from the File > Language menu. You can add new user interface languages if your required languages are not available. See Add a User Interface Language - SuperCROSS for more information.

Adding Descriptive Metadata

You can use Metadata Server to add additional descriptive information to fields. This information will be available to users in SuperCROSS. For example:

If you only want to use descriptive metadata, and do not need multilingual databases, then there is an alternative option for metadata: you can define local metadata using text files and (optionally) static HTML pages. Learn more about this option.
