Localizing the configuration file

You can create additional files to localize the Alfresco Mobile configuration file.
Important: This feature is currently only available for Alfresco Mobile for Android.
These localization files are stored in a Messages folder. The files in this folder contain all the localised strings referenced in the configuration file.
The file names must reflect the locale they represent, for example:
  • English - strings.properties
  • French - strings_fr.properties
  • Spanish - strings_es.properties
  • Italian - strings_it.properties
  • German - strings_de.properties
  • Japanese - strings_ja.properties
Note: Only include localization files for languages that are currently available in Alfresco Mobile.
  1. Create a new folder named Messages at /Company Home/Data Dictionary/Mobile/ in your repository.
  2. Create as many localization files as you require, following the examples below:

    English = strings.properties

    profile.default.title=Default
    profile.default.summary=Default profile
    home.menu.header=Views
    view.properties.title=General
    view.properties.description=Default Properties,

    French = strings_fr.properties

    profile.default.title=D\u00e9faut
    profile.default.summary=Profile par d\u00e9faut
    home.menu.header=Vues par d\u00e9faut
    view.properties.title=General
    view.properties.description=Description,
  3. Add the files to /Company Home/Data Dictionary/Mobile/Messages in your repository.

    Once the files are added they're automatically applied to all localized Alfresco Mobile for Android connections to your server the next time the user starts a new session. You can make changes and updates to the file, and add new localization files, whenever you need to.
