i would like to know if it is possible to add page numbering to a Word document in other languages than english, in the form of "Page X of Y". For instance, in spanish "Página X de Y". I cannot concatenate the word "Página" with the page number because I need the "de Y" part.

I cannot find any option to do that in the API. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Yes, you can customize that content. To accomplish this task, you need to overwrite the static var $pageNumber in the file. This var is a public static variable with the skeleton to be used, so you can copy and paste its content and translate w:t tags in your custom script.

Yeah! That worked.
