Hi Alex,

All the translations are located in the jboss-4.0.2/server/default/deploy/lams.ear/lams-dictionary.jar/org/lamsfoundation/lams folder. If you need to edit your a translation, you can do it there.

For instance if you want to change a Q&A label for Spanish, the file you would need to edit is:


Now if you are modifying UTF8/Unicode language characters (Greek, Polish, Russian, Chinese), I would suggest you will need to use the native2ascii utility (comes with Java JDK) to convert the file into an editable file (which then you can normally edit with any normal text editor).

So if I want to edit the Russian tranlation I would do

$ native2ascii -reverse > Russian.txt

Then just normally edit the Russian.txt file and change the labels as much as I like. After you are done editing, run:

$ native2ascii Russian.txt >

And then copy the to

You will need to stop LAMS, delete the jboss-4.0.2/server/default/tmp and work directories and restart LAMS for these labels to take effect.

The other options is to join the translating team as you can just edit the translations for a particular language directly from the i18n site. Using the i18n is a lot easier (see )

As a translator, you can also export your translations into a convenient that you can just use in your lams server straight away.
