Both the Pentaho Enterprise Console and the Pentaho Administration Console use a message bundle called PacLocalizedMessages.properties which contains all of the text content common to each console. The default language is English, but translated you can translate the message bundles for the any language.
The following additional languages are also shipped with both PEC and PACthe Pentaho Enterprise Console only:
The core Pentaho Administration Console bundle will still have to be translated, even if there is already a translated bundle for the Pentaho Enterprise Console.
The instructions differ slightly between PAC and PEC because of JAR name differences and extra features in PEC. Follow the directions below for the console you are using (PEC for Enterprise Edition, and PAC for Community Edition).
If you would like to make a message bundle for another language, create a translated copy of the default PacLocalizedMessages.properties file found inside of the check out the pentaho-open-admin-console-3.0.0-stable.jar file, appending the ISO language code appropriately. The exact path to the file is /pentaho/server/admin-console/lib/pentaho-open-admin-console-3.0.0-stable.jar/ project, and edit the /org/pentaho/pac/client/i18n/PacLocalizedMessages.propertiesThe JAR will have to be unpacked with an archive utility before you can edit files inside of it. Once you have the modified properties file, you must check out the Administration Console source code and rebuild the application file in it. Create a translated copy of that message bundle, appending the ISO language code appropriately. Rebuild the application when the new bundle is ready. You cannot drop the message bundle directly into the compiled JAR.
The JARs will have to be unpacked with an archive utility before you can edit files inside of them. Once you have the modified properties files, contact send them to your Pentaho support representative and ask to have an engineer rebuild the application with the new message bundlesthem included in the next official Pentaho Enterprise Console release. You cannot drop the message bundles directly into the compiled JARs.
