Translating Strings for User Defined Objects

Administrators can use the Localization feature in Application Administrator to translate strings for the following user defined objects in Request Center. Strings that are available for localization are listed below, followed by the corresponding section in Application Administrator in parenthesis.

Categories and Category Containers


In addition, you can use the Localization feature to override the default labels, messages, and strings for objects that are not user-defined. These appear under the Request Center category in Application Administrator.

To begin, log in to Application Administrator as a user with Remote Administration privilege (or as a member of the Administrator group if on-demand), and then open the Localization feature. Use one of the following methods to translate the default English (United States) strings into another language:

When translation is complete, users who select the locale for the translated version will see the translated strings.

If you add locales in the Predefined Locales tab in Application Administrator before installing or upgrading SSM to 5.2.1, strings are created with default values automatically on the Values page for each predefined locale, and those locales are also available on the Export page. This enables you to export strings to XML using a predefined locale, which means you do not need to use search and replace to alter the <locale> values in the XML file.
