Adding Translations to the SalesLogix Web Client - Part 2

by ajappel on ‎11-01-2011 06:38 AM

I was recently on a presentation where we had to show SalesLogix running in a number of languages including French, Italian, German and Russian.  Installing the language packs that Sage provides ( could not have been easier.  Simply download a language pack file, edit three or four pieces of information in a batch file and start the installation process.


Note, if you are running the batch file on a 64 bit server you may need to adjust the path statement at the end of the batch file to point to Program Files (x86).



This is what the batch file looks like:

@echo off

REM *********************************************************

REM ***  Please edit the following settings as necessary  ***

REM *********************************************************


REM In the case of a SQLExpress install please use "set DBSERVER=\SQLEXPRESS"

set DBSERVER=localhost

set TARGETDB=Saleslogix_Eval

set DBUSER=sa

set DBPASSWORD=password

set UPFILES=Model


REM *********************************************************

REM ***  Do not modify the following                      ***

REM *********************************************************

echo This process will upload 7.5.4 German Localisation to %TARGETDB% database on %DBSERVER%


"%ProgramFiles%\saleslogix\fscopy.exe" /source:"%CD%\%UPFILES%" /target:"c:\\Model" /recursive:true /connection:"Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password=%DBPASSWORD%;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=%DBUSER%;Initial Catalog=%TARGETDB%;Data Source=%DBSERVER%"




The install process should take around 5 minutes to run.  Once it is complete you need to open Application Architect and do a build and deploy.


Finally, when you are running SalesLogix if your browser is set to use English (en-us) you see the English captions.  If you change your browser to run German (de) and do a browser refresh you see the German captions.  Please note, the date formats in SalesLogix will also change to match the browser selection  (Example, en-uk showed dd/mm/yyyy).

For Firefox version 3.6.x you can choose your language selection by going to Tools - Options - Content tab and Choose button.  Add the languages you want to test and make sure the language you want to see is on the top of the list..

For Internet Explorer version  8.x your can choose your language selection by going to Tools - Internet Options - Languages button.  Add the languages you want to test and make sure the language you want to see is on the top of the list.
