Translating the application

To translate the client interface, go on GeoNetwork on Transifex. Only the reference language (ie. en) MUST be updated on github. All other translations MUST be on Transifex.

Main files to translate are the Angular UI ones:


Once translated, the new language needs to be added to the application.

// Add the language here
module.constant('gnLangs', {
  langs: {
    'eng': 'en',
    'dut': 'du',
    'fre': 'fr',
    'ger': 'ge',
    'kor': 'ko',
    'spa': 'es',
    'cze': 'cz'

// Lang names to be displayed in language selector
$scope.langLabels = {'eng': 'English', 'dut': 'Nederlands',
  'fre': 'Français', 'ger': 'Deutsch', 'kor': '한국의',
  'spa': 'Español', 'cze': 'Czech'};
