Dear,Do you know how to change the webdirect toolbar language. Current language is Dutch and I want to select English.
I found the required information on the following website.
Users that have highly customized menu sets for their files were probably a little disappointed that they were locked into using FileMaker’s menu set for WebDirect. While there is no ability to override the actions associated with menu items, we’ve found a way to at least provide your own titles to the menu commands, and some of the other titles used by WebDirect!
Note: This technique is not supported by FileMaker natively and should be used with caution. Future updates of FileMaker may break this hack, and you should always keep backups of your original system files when taking this kind of action. For this example, we will be using a virtual machine, Windows Server 2012 Standard and the FileMaker server sample file.
You will find a file called string.properties under the following Windows file path:
DRIVE:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\jwpc-tomcat\fmi\VAADIN\themes\default\i18n\en
Or under this Mac file path:
DRIVE:/Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/jwpc-tomcat/fmi/VAADIN/themes/default/i18n
Back up this file!
The string.properties file gives you a ton of control, almost 600 titles are stored here. Titles like error messages, menu titles and dialog boxes are all there to customize, even a comment on line 396 with a reminder to Vin Addala that made it through. I use Notepad++ on Windows or TextWrangler on Mac for some nice color contrast while editing.
Are your solutions bilingual? You’re in luck, as all of the languages supported by FileMaker have their own string.properties files as well! Just navigate up to the i18n folder in the file path and find the corresponding folder for what you need. En is for English, fr for French, de for German, etc.
Since we just messed with something that was not meant to be touched, make sure to take the time to log in and review the dialog boxes, menu titles and other titles that you just changed for errors, cut off strings, and broken formatting!
Do you want to use English for all users?
As you found, in i18n folder Dutch language is in "nl" folder, then you can rename it like as "nl.orig" to disable it. (Of course this also is not "supported" way.) Then setting Webd language to English in admin console affect users using browser it accepts Dutch, they get English pages.
Supported way is each user who want to use English should change his browser setting to English from Dutch (change order of languages). Unfortunately, this setting is not only for Webd, all the sites.
There may be web server setting to rewrite accept-language header, but I don't know how.
