The IBM® Lotus® Expeditor runtimes have been translated for Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3 languages.
The Group 1 languages include:
- Chinese (simplified)
- Chinese (traditional)
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
The Group 2 languages include:
When installing a platform on Linux®, Hebrew and Arabic locale specific fragments are not installed on Linux. Installation of the Hebrew and Arabic locales on Linux and launching with those locales is also not supported.
The Group 3 languages include:
U.S. English is packaged within all IBM Lotus Expeditor features and plug-ins and is available by default.
During the initial installation of the platform, only the national language features that contain the current locale are installed and enabled.
If you are using Windows® Vista, be sure to review Administering the platform on Windows Vista
prior to installing the language features.
To enable locale specific content, additional national language features must be installed. The platform must be started in the desired locale to install and enable the national language features for that locale. This can be accomplished by switching the system to the appropriate locale before starting IBM Lotus Expeditor. It can also be accomplished by starting IBM Lotus Expeditor with a –nl command argument. For example, to start the platform in French, enter <install dir
/rcp/rcplauncher.exe –nl fr.
When IBM Lotus Expeditor has started, install the appropriate group of languages. If you need to install another group, you must shutdown IBM Lotus Expeditor and change locale using one of the above methods.
If National Language Features are installed but do not match the current platform locale, then the features will not be enabled.
When viewed in the Application
-> Application Management
dialog, the list of installed and enabled features is filtered based upon the locale. For example, if both the Group 1 and Group 2 language features are installed, and you have started the platform using the Finnish locale, then the Application Management dialog will only show the Group 2 language features, and will not show the Group 1 language features.
When supporting a language other than English on an system with multiple users, you, as the administrator, must install the correct groups of languages. If space permits, install all language groups. If you only need French then install only the Group 1 language translation. There are restrictions on how this can be done. To install Group 1 languages, you must start the platform in a language that Group 1 supports.
The provisioning system will automatically enable a single locale group per user and does not support automatic switching between locale groups. In an environment with multiple users, each user can have a different locale group as long as the administrator has installed all of the required NL packs before users launch IBM Lotus Expeditor and provision their own workspaces.
