Web Client supports the localization of the client user interface into different languages. The strings used for the display of each language in the user interface are stored in a JSON file in the Web Client site directory. To create a new language JSON file:

  1. Locate the en.json file. For example, located at: C:\SmartPlant Foundation Server Files\SPFWebClient_Sites\[Site Name]\content\lang\core.

  2. Copy the en.json file.

  3. Rename the copied en.json file to match the language being translated. For example, if you are translating to Japanese, rename the file to ja.json.

  4. Translate the strings in the copied file into the required language.

    This step is only for translating the Web Client strings.

  5. Save the new language JSON file in the same location as the English language en.json file.

    A browser setup for the Japanese language now reads the ja.json file and displays the translated strings in Web Client.
