Completing Localization for an Unshipped Language

This topic is part of Localizing an Unshipped Language.

To complete the localization process for the unshipped language XXX, you must translate all of the appropriate content that is associated with this language.

When you have translated repository elements, you would compile the SRF file for this language and distribute this file to Siebel Servers and Siebel Mobile Web Clients, into the XXX subdirectory for your language under the objects directory. You created the language-specific subdirectory in Creating New Language Subdirectories.

Language-specific content that you can translate or create includes the following items. See also the list of nonlocalizable elements in Defining the Scope of the Localization.

  • (In Siebel Tools) Localizable Siebel Repository strings in the Siebel database. Add translations for symbolic string references, object locales, message categories, and so on.
  • (In the Siebel application) Translatable language-specific values (Display Value field) for lists of values (LOVs) and multilingual lists of values (MLOVs).

    Add all of the values that you need for your new XXX language. For example, LOVs used by workflow processes must be localized into the new language.

    NOTE:  If an existing LOV record for your base language or another language does not have the Translate flag checked, then do not copy and translate this record. Copy only those records that are flagged as translatable.

    For detailed information about configuring LOVs and MLOVs, including the use of flags such as Translate and Multilingual, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

  • (In Siebel application) Other seed data such as time zone translations, iHelp files, SmartScripts, correspondence templates, email templates, Siebel Anywhere administration data, and so on.
  • Text that appears in image files or Web template files.

Test all of the changes before you complete the project and roll out the localized application.

For more information about tasks such as these that you perform in a Siebel Tools development environment, see books such as Configuring Siebel Business Applications and Using Siebel Tools.
