Translation of mouseover texts in the iView Title bars


We are using EP5.0 SP5 and we've implemented ESS/MSS. However, I had to translate things into Swedish and this is one of the things left.

I have problems in finding where I can change the onmouseover text for all the controls in the iView Title bar.

Has anyone done any such translation?

Thank you in advance,

Kind regards

    The textfiles (if the business package supports multilanguage) are stored in the .par.

    Simply duplicate one ans set swedish locales before the name of the textfile.

    Internationalizing The Simple Example

    Language support for Java iViews is to use Java resource bundles. The PRT

    provides an API that allows an iView to communicate with the resource bundle

    containing the text to display in the iView.

    For Translating Strings

    Create a resource file

    Location: Private/classes

    Naming :


    Specify resource file name in the Profile


    Access the language resource in your code

    resource = request.getResourceBundle();


    Sample Entry in


    For translating Parameter Names use the Description attribute

      Hi Oliver,

      Thank you for the feedback. Most of our translation we've done according to your description below, i.e. creating for Swedish.

      However, translating mouse-over texts like for the iView title bar Collapse and Expand didn't work out the same way. I had to change these texts directly in the DB since I couldn't use the Metadata String Tool.

      Other texts like the <<<< BACK button in SP6 and You are here: in the detailed navigation had to be translated directly in the JSP files which builds up the TLN and the DLN.

      Kind regards
