Part Number B12140-01
The following sections describe how OUI supports multiple languages and internationalization:
OUI runs in the language of the operating system. OUI uses the language that Java detects, the system locale value, and sets that to the default language. The OUI dialogs will be displayed in this language if available. If specific OUI dialogs are not translated in the language of the operating system, those dialogs will be shown in English.
If multiple languages are defined for the products installed, OUI allows language selection for all install types via the Languages button (shown on the Available Products page when there is more than one top level component).
Note:If there is only one top level component, the Languages button is shown on the Install Types page.
If the staging area has only one top level component with only one install type, then the button is not shown and a Language Selection dialog is displayed later in the installation. You can also control the selected languages by setting the SELECTED_LANGUAGES variable in a response file or through the command line:
The language selections are for the top level component being installed. A top level component is the product selected on the Products Selection dialog, one per installation session. If any sub-components (not top level) do not have files defined for the language the user selects, English only will be installed. The English files are always installed for all components, regardless of user selection or operating system language.
At install time, OUI looks at the language list of each file and file group to determine which files need to be copied.
The OUI product is translated into 9 languages and includes translations for all generic OUI dialogs. Note that any custom dialogs and product-specific information that are part of your installations must be translated and staged independently.
