Hi,

I am not able to convert the content of my webpage from english into other languages in the portlets which I have created. Is there a way by which I can do so? I specify the locale using the language protlet but it only works for the out of the box portlets. Content of portlets created by me does not change, it remains in english. Any help is appeciated.

Thanks,
Ishan

you're stuck. You didn't immediately start using language bundles from the get-go, so now you have to go back and backfill it in.

If you are using Liferay IDE, there was an option to create I18N properties file when creating a project.

Even if the file is there, you still have to ensure you're not using hard-coded strings for your content.

Following page offers the general idea. It's a little bit old and doesn't contain internationalization in Alloy UI which liferay currently uses.

Hi, I am using Eclipse-Indigo IDE with liferay plugin to develop my portlets. I didn't come across any such option.
Where can I get any idea about this?

Hi,

I created the "portal-ext.properties" file in the location "liferay-portal-6.1.0-ce-ga1\tomcat-7.0.23\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes".
Tell me if any entries in that file can help.
I couldn't find resource bundles.

New -> Liferay Project -> (Enter project name) and press Next -> Liferay MVC (check "Create custom portlet class" <- this is the important part! )
-> (Enter portlet class name) and press Next -> There should be "Create resource bundle file". Check that.

Got the language.porperties file. But how do I go about it so that all my portlet content gets translated from one locale to another.

First you flush out your language bundle, putting in all the key/value pairs.
Then you modify all of your pages to refer to the language bundle rather than the hard-coded strings you have in there now.
Then you hire someone that speaks the language you want to support, and have them fill out the language bundle for that language, using your default bundle as the key.

I've already given an uri to a page explaining what you had to do in your portlet. Please read it.
