Setting a root folder
To begin the localization process, set a root folder, which stores:
- The localization database (l10n.db )
- The log file that logs the translation progress (l10n.log )
- Package definition files that you create for translation. (See Creating a localization package definition.)
The default root folder is the BMCRemedyDeveloperStudioInstallDir\workspace\l10N folder.
By default, the localization toolkit uses the SQLite database, which is sufficient for extracting applications that will result in a small database. If you are using a large production database, you might want to use a BMC Remedy AR System server database for the localization toolkit's database. This is described in the following procedure.
To set the root folder for localization
- In BMC Remedy Developer Studio, select Window > Preferences.
- Click the BMC Remedy Localization link.
- In the Root Folder field, use the default root folder that is displayed, or click Browse and select a different folder.
- (Optional) Configure the localization toolkit database to run on a BMC Remedy AR System server.
- Select the Use the AR System server as the localization toolkit database check box.
For better performance, use a different server from the server that contains the applications you want to localize.
In the AR System Server field, enter the name of the server you want to use.
- If this is the first time that you are setting up the database, click Set Up Database.
After the server is set up, you do not need to click Set Up Database again.
An application called BMC Remedy Localization Toolkit Database is installed on the server you entered in step b. This application contains four forms.
- Click OK.
