Article Published in The VIEW: Getting Started with XPages Localization
Kathy Brown and I co-wrote an article on getting started with XPages Localization for The VIEW journal (subscription required).
The enterprise is global. If your organization stretches across borders or your clients are in other countries, you cannot just develop an application in your native language and expect that to be good enough. XPages allows you to enable localization and provide multiple languages to display to users.
Here in Part 1 of this two-part series, we will discuss localization features built into XPages. We’ll also demonstrate how to enable localization, work with the localization files, and verify that the application is handling localization. Additionally, we provide some helpful tips to make the process easier. In Part 2, we will demonstrate how to extend out-of-the-box functionality by providing a means to translate computed values and other programmatic text.
