Localization in Portal Server 7.2 (recently released)
By Mahipalsinh Rana on Jun 11, 2008
Recently Portal Server 7.2 is released. Checkout more details about new features and download at this blog.
In this release we have localized in seven languages as done in earlier releases.
German (de) , Spanish (es) , French (fr) , Japanese (ja) , Korean (ko) , Simplified Chinese (zh_CN) , Tranditional Chinese (zh_TW).
I will talk some key changes we have done in localization.
1) There is NO l10n packages. then where is l10n files? , L10n files are packaged in base packages. We call it "Unified Packaging"
What is advantage of this?
- Customer does not need to perform any special step to install and configure localized version of portal. It will give seamless experience to l10n users
- Upgrade and migration would be much easier
2) In open source workspace , location of l10n files has been changed from what it was in close source workspace. Now each l10n file is placed along with corresponding english. It will also community/developer to easily find localized files in workspace.
Visit localization wiki page to get more details on localization activities in portal server. It is also provides various useful "How to" to help l10n users.
