Remarks
Prompts

Tekla Structures prefixes the given prompt with "prompt_" and looks for a translation in the prompts.ail file. If the translation (e.g. "prompt_Pick_first_position") is not found in the prompts.ail file, the prompt string is displayed as such. This feature can be used to give already translated strings to the picker.
