Hello experts! :-)
I have the following requirement:
- I'm working with the spanish localization for Dynamics NAV 2015 (which is supported directly from Microsoft and Microsoft Spain). So far so good.
Within Spain, we have different languages besides spanish. And we need to add one of those to a Dynamics NAV installation.
Of course we went ahead and translated all the necessary captions to add the new language code and its correct translation. And of course we cannot choose that language when we go to "Select Language". It only shows Spanish and English.
I have found some information regarding this matter, but I haven't been able to properly satisfy this need for now.
Could you point me in the right direction please?
Thanks in advance
May I know where did you add those translations? in development environment objects?
Like you said, yes, in the development environment, adding the language code and the translation to the CaptionML of the objects.
Which only works if you can actually select to load NAV with that language. Something I cannot do now :-)
In order to select the language we need to have language folder in RTC and Service folder
or am I wrong?
I believe you are correct. But with what files? And how do I get them, or generate them?
the language subfolders under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\RoleTailored Client e.g. de-DE contain the resource files (created with visual studio: contain text values, labels, images, ...)
also there is one folder per language like ENU, DEU, ..., which contains fin.etx, fin.stx.
for that follow

I checked that information Jonathan, thank you.
I do not seem to find how to generate those resource files you first speak of though, or how to change the ones that already exist.
did you follow mbs.microsoft.com/.../GFMLocalizationPortalMC_nav ?
i think at the end you are developing a complete localisation for e.g. catalan.
so a step by step instruction is needed, visual studio templates to develope that kind of resource files and so on. with a decompile tool like ilspy its possible to edit the source of the resource files, but this is the hacking way. ;-)
I understanding on your question is you did translation on object caption but you haven't make resource file for RTC and Service. Selecting language on RTC is base on language resource file. Eg., you did translate for CHS (Chinese) at object caption or translation text but you haven't make resource file for RTC and Service You won't see Chinese Language on your Language Selection. You need to generate file for RTC and Server.
You need (PLLP) toolkit if you want to generate resource file by yourself. All resource file and instruction is inside toolkit zip.
Here is more information for translation
If you are installing a language which Microosft does not support then use the PLLP toolkit as Yukon mentioned but if Microsoft supports the language then just need to download the language module from the partner source and install the respected install file
Totally agree with Yukon. There are many unsupported languages for Asia, and we have to translate ourselves. Some main points for selecting Language from RTC:
- Download PartnerTranslationsKit, follow "NAV 2015 Creating Custom Platform Translations.pdf".
- Copy needed output languages (for example, Vietnamese) from project (~\Output\vi-VN) to both RTC (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\RoleTailored Client\vi-VN) and NAV Service (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\Service\vi-VN).
- Register assemblies with strong name key token in the Client Add-in table (2000000069).
- Restart NAV Service.
- Open RTC and select Language.
After several hours of testing, I was able to add the new language succesfully :-)
Thank you very much for your suggestions and input
Hello, I'm new in the Nav industry , and I have to do the translation Nav to Bosnian language. Canyou please explain how you managed to generate files and do translations
Welcome from Microsoft Dynamics NAV Community an NAV. Suresh Kulla and Khoa Nguyen already provided the require toolkit link and tip and trick. You can follow the documentation after you download the PLLP and unzipped the file.
Please open new topic if you have any issue with this or other.
