Localization Feature of Reporting Software

InetSoft's reporting software allows for localization making it a viable option for international organizations seeking a unified solution. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

Localization can be implemented at both the Portal level as well as the report level. When users log into the Portal they can specify a locale (language-country combination), based on which the InetSoft software can dynamically modify the Portal interface (Portal tabs, repository tree, Ad Hoc design interface) as well as report elements (text elements, chart axis titles, table header columns, etc.) and data model/query names displayed in the Ad Hoc tool.

Two independent mapping files are required for the two levels of localization mentioned above. One file maps Portal entities, and the other file maps report elements and data model/query names.

  • The “srinter” mapping file controls localization for interface text (tabs, tree nodes, Ad Hoc controls, etc.).
  • The “SreeBundle” mapping file controls localization for report text (text in tables, charts, etc.) and data model/query names.

The two files are discussed in the following sections.

To implement either level of localization, you first need to register the desired locales in the 'Localization' page of the Enterprise Manager:

  1. Under the Server tab, select 'Configuration' > 'Localization'.
  2. Click 'Add' to open the 'Add Locale' panel.
  3. Enter the ISO-standard two-letter codes for the desired language and country. These codes should match the codes used in the “srinter” and “SreeBundle” mapping file names.
  4. Click 'Apply' to register the locale.

The locale entries you add in the table of the 'Localization' page will be displayed to the user in the 'Locale' menu of the Report Portal login screen. Create a separate pair of mapping files for each registered locale.
