Localizing Business Process Server

Localizing Business Process Server

You can localize Business Process Server components, namely Business Process Portal, BPM Designer, and Business Process Modeler, to a language of your choice. We recommend that a Senior Application Developer with expertise in Java design and development performs this localization task. This chapters details the steps to be taken to localize each Business Process Server component.
Before you start localizing Business Process Server component, ensure that your computer is configured to use the requisite language. Also make sure that you select appropriate fonts and character encoding for your browser. For example, if you want to localize to Japanese language, you must set the fonts and character encoding for the Mozilla Firefox browser as shown in the following figure.

For more details about these, refer to your operating system’s documentation.
Note: To ensure that Task notification emails (using a localized HTML or ETL Email template) display language characters properly, you need to set the parameter in the file and the oebps.characterencoding parameter in the oebps.conf file to value, UTF-8.
