Scalix Wiki -> How-Tos -> Scalix 10 SWA Localization

Note: Localizing SWA will be officially supported as of Scalix 11 and we'll update the information with an official How-To posted here. I've copied Marijns's initial findings with Scalix 11. The main issue that he's running into - not being able to ADD another langugage, but to replace one of the existing ones, is part of the changes we make for Scalix 11. Marijn, many thanks. Florian.

Scalix 10.0.x

This was contributed by Marijn van Butselaar. Many thanks!

This is not yet officially supported, but it can be done without to much trouble.

Please note that the preferences still only state English and German after replacing the files, this is due to the fact that the language/locale list is still hardcoded.

A last note: Please contact the specified maintainer if you encounter any translation glitches or faults, thanks.

How to make your own SWA translation

  1. Choose witch Locale you wish to overwrite (English or German) Note that u might want to keep the English translation in most cases, so go for the German one.

  3. MOST IMPORTANT - Translate the strings_??.xml file (or download one)
  4. Put the translated version of the strings_??.xml in /opt/scalix-tomcat/webapps/webmail/WEB-INF/data
  5. Optionally - spellchecker
    • Backup the spellchecker file (i.e. german.0) and optionally the phonetics file (i.e.
    • Replace the spellchecker files (i.e. german.0 and with the correct iSpell (plain text) dictionary file for the translation language.
  6. Restart the scalix-tomcat service

Note that replacing the English spellchecker is a bit more complicated, but can be done as well.
