Lienzo has been created with internationalization support in mind. All the strings used through out the framework are localized and default to the English language.
Lienzo employs the GWT built-in I18N mechanism which easily allows the support for multiple locales.
In order to use internationalized characters, make sure that your host HTML file contains the charset=utf8 content type in the meta tag in the header:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
You must also ensure that all relevant source and .properties files are set to be in the UTF-8 charset in your IDE.
Adding support for a new locale
If you would like Lienzo to provide support for a specific locale, simply:
- Contact the developers and they will provide you with a list of all the strings found in the toolkit.
- Create a plain text file and provide the localized text needed for all the strings founds in the framework.
- Send the file to the developers.
- The new property file will then be added and provided as a bundle so everyone in the community benefits from the new supported locale.
