Supporting Multiple Languages in Plug-in for PPM
PPM integrates with Microsoft Project using the Plug-in for PPM. Both PPM and Microsoft Project provide support for multiple languages. The Plug-in for PPM also supports multiple languages. Setting the language for the Plug-in for PPM provides standard translations of static interface elements of the PPM menu in Microsoft Project. The languages supported by the Plug-in for PPM depend on the properties files that have been translated and deployed.
Setting the language for the Plug-in for PPM may also define the language of the content returned by PPM, depending on the language packs that are deployed on the PPM Server. If the language pack for the selected Plug-in for PPM language is installed on the PPM Server, PPM returns content in the selected language. If the language pack for the selected Plug-in for PPM language is not installed on the PPM Server, PPM returns content in PPM's system language.
By default, the Plug-in for PPM supports the following languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Turkish. Users can select one of these languages from the PPM Plugin Preferences page (see the Project Management User Guide for information about how users can select the language of the Plug-in for PPM).
