localization of Xcelsius content

hi,

How can we localize the Xcelsius 2008 dashboard developed in English locale to other locales?

Localization involves change in the following as per locale.

1) Strings

2) Date Time format

3) Number format

4) Currency format

It is known that by using WEBI reports and additional tables in DB/Universe, we can localize the strings. Then use Live Office connection in Xcelsius to make use of this content.

But my requirement is not to use any of the WEBI/Crystal reports content in Xcelsius dashboard and get Localization.

Is there a way this can be achievable? If so,

What are the best practices to localize pure Xcelsius Dashboard content?

Also, What are the highlights of Xcelsius 2010 w.r.t Localization?

Thanks,

Vamsee

    Hi Vamsee,

    If I understand correctly, you would like the format of dates, times, numbers, etc. to display differently for users in different locales for the same dashboard, is that right?

    If so, BI4.0 supports this, but as far as I know, it isn't possible in XI3.1 (Xcelsius 2008).
