Translate the SharePoint UI

Posted by Alexander Ketelaar

In a previous post I showed the possibility to set another language for the UI and how to export the names of list, content types, etc to translate these to a target language.

If we want to translate not only the default UI elementsĀ (done with languageĀ packs) or content (done with variations) but also user-specified text such as field names, site name, etc. we can export these terms to a translation file.

Multi language SharePoint site

Posted by Alexander Ketelaar

Within SharePoint you have multiple types of multi language. One of them is the MUI (Multilanguage User Interface) which will translate the interfaces into different languages based on the user preferences.
