Installing TinyMCE language packs

Translations in Alfresco Community Edition use language packs. The supported language packs are: German (de), English (en), Spanish (es), French (fr), Italian (it), Japanese (ja), Dutch (nl), Norwegian - Bokmål (nb), Russian (ru), Brazilian Portuguese (pt_BR), and Simplified Chinese (zh_CN). The language used switches according to the browser locale. Ensure that your browser is set up to view the relevant locale, which ensures that the special characters display correctly in your installed instance.

The source-localized files are encoded in ASCII, and the special and accented characters are displayed using escape sequences. The source files have been renamed using the corresponding locale for each language. For example, site-welcome.properties is called sitewelcome_ fr.properties for the French version.

If you wish to use a translation that is not supplied with Alfresco Community Edition, then you must add the appropriate TinyMCE language pack for the translation to work correctly.

  1. Browse to the TinyMCE website: TinyMCE.
  2. Download the required TinyMCE language pack.

    Note: The next step makes configuration changes to the Alfresco Share application to configure the additional language packs for TinyMCE. This step can only be performed after Alfresco Community Edition has been installed.
  3. Unpack the language file to:

    <TOMCAT_HOME>/webapps/share/modules/editors/tiny_mce/langs.

  4. Ensure that the browser cache is cleared or refresh the page.
