Configuring Digit Matching and Translation

This task configures digit matching and translation and is optional. Either a Dialed Number or an Originating Number can be translated. Translation from a null number to a null string is supported. Translation from a null string to digits is not supported. To translate on both Dialed Number and Originating Number, see Advanced Translation Features.

 

Example Uses for Translation

 

Important Note:

There are a couple ways to download a Translation Table. Below are the two methods.

 

  1. A Translation Table will not get sent to the IMG until you click the Save Translation Table button shown below. Selecting the commit option does not download the table. After the Translation Table has been modified, click Save Translation Table button.

 

OR

 

  1. In ClientView if you are editing a translation table both that object and the parent object will have a cached icon. You can continue to make changes to the table without downloading the table to the IMG. When done with all of the edits select an object outside of the parent object and the table will be downloaded.
