Using the localization toolkit to localize your applications

BMC provides a localization toolkit to help you easily localize your AR Systemapplications from English to other locales.

The localization toolkit simplifies the process and it affects the following application components:

  • Forms
  • Associated views
  • Fields
  • Message catalog entries
  • Configuration data

You can use a graphical or command-line interface to localize the applications.

The process for using the localization toolkit is as follows:
