Switching Language...

Hi Michael,

I have this situation:

An existing portal has always been running on en-US, without any other locales activated.
I want to switch this to nl-NL, and disable the en-US.

The "problem" I have if I do this, on all the Helferlein modules the admin has added the field labels are empty.

That's logical as the localized values have never been added for that label.

But I also don't feel like copying them all.

Would simply changing the Local in the helferlein_babelfish table to nl-NL solve this?

Thanks, Timo

Hi Timo,

be careful, as in the helferlein_BabelFish table could be a lot of stuff. If this is the only portal running on this database, it would be OK. Otherwise take care of which modules are in this portal.

The values in the "Qualifier" are like this:

helferlein.Form.Settings.x - x=ModuleID

helferlein.Form.FormItem.y - y=FormItemID (as defined in the table helferlein_FormItem)

Portal.PortalID = Modules.PortalID, Modules.ModuleID = helferlein_Form.Module.ID

You might also want to change the locale value in helferlein_FormSubmission, but this not really necessary.

Let me know if you need assistance.

Best wishes

Ok, I changed the locale in the database only for the correct portal and it works fine.

Thanks, Timo
