Geographic Service (pentaho-geo) Localization

To localize the Pentaho Geographic Service, follow the below instructions.

  1. Stop the BA Server if it is currently running.
  2. Copy the default messages.properties file in /pentaho-solutions/system/pentaho-geo/resources/messages/ to a localized properties file in the same location.

    This file contains client-side text within the map visualization, including tooltips.

    Note: Do not attempt to localize other properties files in this directory.
  3. Extract the default messages.properties file from the pentaho-geo---check--5.3.0 .jar archive in the /pentaho-solutions/system/pentaho-geo/lib/ directory. This file contains server-side text for various service status and error messages.
  4. Create a localized version of the extracted properties file, then repack it into the same location in the JAR.
The Pentaho Geographic Service now has localized message bundles for the locale you specified in the properties file names.
