Alfresco British English Language Pack

Author: Will Abson

This language pack provides a British English translation of Alfresco Share.

The translation is complete for Alfresco Community 4.0 and should be backwards-compatible with all previous versions.

Building from Source

An Ant build script is provided to build a JAR file containing the custom files, which can then be installed into your Alfresco installation.

To build the JAR file, run the following command from the base project directory.

ant dist-jar

The command should build a JAR file named alfresco-langpack_en-gb.jar in the build/dist directory within the project.

Installation

Copy the JAR file into <TOMCAT_HOME>/shared/lib. If this directory does not exist then you can create it, but you should also check that the shared.loader property defined in <TOMCAT_HOME>/conf/catalina.properties includes it, e.g.

shared.loader=${catalina.home}/shared/classes,${catalina.home}/shared/lib/*.jar

You should update the value if it is empty, or add this value to the bottom of the file if it is not already defined or is commented out.

You will need to restart the Alfresco server before you can use the language pack.

Usage

Alfresco Share will auto-detect the client language based on your browser settings. You will need to add 'English (United Kingdom)' as the first entry in your preferred languages - in Firefox click Tools > Options > Content > Languages > Choose or click Language settings in Chrome's Advanced Settings.

To use the language pack in the Alfresco Explorer web client you will need to add the en-gb locale to the list of additional languages displayed on the login screen in web-client-config-custom.xml.
