Installing and Setting Up End User Translation Functionality

End User Translation functionality provides you with the ability to translate the text strings within the Siebel Handheld application. The translation process should be undertaken during the development cycle and once completed your development team can then package the translated strings for distribution.

The translation process requires the generation of a file of strings from the handheld binaries which are then translated and distributed to the user base. This file, userstr.txt, containing the translated strings is then used to override the strings within the existing handheld binaries. Therefore, you will be required to build a copy of userstr.txt into the installation media for your handheld application.

The translation string file is version specific so you must repeat this process every time you upgrade your Siebel Handheld application.
