Translation of Texts of SAPUI5 AppsLocate this document in the navigation structure

In general, language-dependent texts of SAPUI5 apps are stored in properties files (resource bundles):

  • There's a default properties file for the source texts which contains all externalized strings from the app. It looks like this:

    <name>.properties (<name> is an identifier)



    An app can have n properties files.

  • During the translation process, properties files are created for every language the app is translated to and they look like this:

    <name of property file>_<locale>.properties (<locale> contains the language and an optional country code)

    Example: contains the American English texts of the source file.

This is the recommended approach for translating texts of SAPUI5 apps, for example SAP Fiori apps.
