Internationalization

Hi I am developong an application for traditional chinese. I am setting the user language to Traditional chinese in the portal. I see the portal content in chinese but the webdynpro screens are coming in English. It will be great if someone tells me the following.

1. What is the extention for the xlf file. I have tried zh_TW but I cannot see my screen in traditional chinese

2. What is the source language to choose in the xlf file header

If I catch the session language set by the portal, it shows zh_MO.

    You have to maintain xlf files for each text attribute to see the local language in Web Dynpro. The file extesion is .xlf.

    To test you can go to Tools > Internet Options > Languages in browser and add the language you want to test and move it to the top of the list.

      This is not necessary since the locale is already set in Portal user's settings. The Portal settings have a higher priority then IE's settings.

      Yes, I also think the problem here is in the .xlf files that have to be created especially for the Chinese locale.

    Hi,

    You have to set to copy all the default generated xlf files and pasted there as it is (the same name) with extension as "_CN".

    Also then you have to open the xlf files and in the resource type you will get the UI elements where you have to specify the chinese terms for individual elements.

    Pl see if that is helpful for you...

    Regards
