Add a Language to The Digitool User Interface


It is possible to add additional language translations to the Digitool user interface by following the instructions in Chapter 33 of DigiTool Configuration Guide.pdf


After implementing the configurations described it is necessary to add the language as an option in the "Choose Language" dialogue, accessed by clicking the globe icon in the upper right of the user interface.


In this example, Turkish has been added:


These were the steps performed to add the Turkish language to the menu as in the example.

Edit www_r_conf.xml

Edit the file /exlibris/dtl/u3_1/dtle/tab/www_r_conf.xml

At the terminal:


>cd tab

>vi www_r_conf.xml


The following section needs to be added:



      <name lng="ENG">Türk</name>

      <name lng="TUR">Türk</name>

      <name lng="GER">Türk</name>

      <name lng="FRE">Türk</name>

      <name lng="HEB">Türk</name>


In your case the languages may differ slightly depending on what has been added to the server.

This command should only take a second or two to complete.

The new language should now appear in the Choose Language menu.
