Classification of Text ElementsLocate this document in the navigation structure

The text elements have to be classified with additional transformation to enable proper translation.

Text elements in the '<name>.properties' file are simple value key pairs separated by an equals sign. However, in order to enable proper translation for these text elements, it is necessary to classify the text elements with additional information. This additional information must be placed in the line directly above the text element and must begin with the number sign ('#').

The complete line must have one of the following structures:

  • #<TextType>

  • #<TextType>,<MaximumLength>

  • #<TextType>,<MaximumLength>:<AdditionalContextInformation>

  • #<TextType>:<AdditionalContextInformation>
