Translation question (already translate whs website to dutch) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After i successfully translated the whs website to dutch i would like to begin to translate the home server console also to dutch. I've searched the files I need to edit but I can not figured out.

    Does anyone know in wich files are the strings with the text that i can edit ??? I think it's a dll or exe file but i don't know for sure.

    If can complete the translation i would love to share it with other users.

    For the people who wants to see a screenshot of the already dutch translated whs website look below:

  • The WHS Console uses .NET Localization techniques for different languages. There aren't any text files that you can just edit; you need to create an assembly with the correct resource names and translations, and then place that DLL file in a subdirectory of C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\ named for the language (\de or \en, for example). Then you'll need to set the Region in Windows correctly, and hopefully your new resource assemblies will get picked up and used.

    You'll need a copy of .NET Reflector to open the managed WHS assemblies to have a look at their Resource files, then create and compile your own using Visual Studio.

    If you've got a non-English version of WHS, you can see the localized resource assemblies in C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\<language code>\ and open them in Reflector to get an idea of the work involved.
