Understanding the language property file

The language properties file allows you to translate your content to other supported languages. You can also translate Whatfix UI so that the user has a consistent experience. For example, the next button in a walkthrough step can show in the translated language.

Translating using the property file is a 2 step process:

Step 1: Downloading the language property file To download the property file of a language,

  1. Navigate to the Whatfix Dashboard.

  3. Click Languages.

  4. Download the property file for a language using the Download icon.

Step 2: Translating and uploading the property file Once you've downloaded the language property file,

  1. Extract the zip file and open the file using a text editor like Sublime Text or any text or code editor.
Note
If it's the first time translating to the language, translate content under the folder "full"
If you're translating the new content created, translate contents under the folder "delta".
  1. Translate the content.
  2. Each language has an associated properties file that can be used to translate Whatfix UI texts so that the user has a consistent experience.
  3. Once the file is translated, convert it into a zip folder using a file archiver and compressor tool.
  4. Once the zip file containing the translated content is ready, select the language you're uploading using the checkbox and then click the Upload button.

Note
Each time you add a new language, Whatfix content needs to be translated to the new language.
