Bob, don't you think, "Globalization and Localization" is used only for changing formats; like date, time etc. You can not use this concept for changing Label names. No way. "Label1" is "Label1" in any language. Changing names, is not at all logical.
I guess we can't do that.  What do you think Bob ?

Use find and replace

Find "Label1" replace with "SomeFrenchWord1"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I think , may be, genesisproject , wanted to say "my label ***titles*** from english to french"

In that case resource files are what is required and you can get help from the link suggsted by Bob

You're right Baan, but that article talked a bit about resource files and other stuff than just formatting, but it lacked the one thing that I thought it had:
