The API Manager comes with two Web interfaces as API Publisher and API Store. The instructions given below show how to localize the Web interface of API Publisher in Spanish. Same instructions apply to localize API Store as well in any other language.

Changing the browser settings

  1. First, set the browser language to a preferred language. Instructions should be available in the web browser's user guide. For example, language can be selected in Google Chrome through Settings -> Show advanced settings -> Languages menu.
  2. Set the browser's encoding type to UTF-8.

    Introduction to resource files

  3. Go to <AM_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/publisher directory where <AM_HOME> is the API Manager distribution home.
  4. There are two types of resource files used to define localization strings in WSO2 API Manager.
    • The resource file used to store the strings defined in .jag files according to browser locale (For example, locale_en.json) is located in .../publisher/site/conf/locales/jaggery folder.
    • The resource file i18nResources.json, which is used to store strings defined in client-side javascript files such as pop-up messages when a UI event is triggered, is located in .../publisher/site/conf/locales/js folder.

    For example,

    To implement localization support for jaggery, we use its in-built script module 'i18n'. For more information, refer to

    Localizing strings in Jaggery files

  5. To localize the API publisher to Spanish, first localize the strings defined in jaggery files. Create a new file by the name locale_{lolcaleCode}.json inside ...publisher/site/conf/locales/jaggery folder. For example, if the language set in the browser is Spanish, the locale code is es and the file name should be locale_es.json.
  6. Add the key-value pairs to locale_es.json file. For an example on adding key value pairs, refer to locale_en.json file in ...publisher/site/conf/locales/jaggery folder. It is the default resource file for jaggery.

    In addition, a section of a sample locale_es.json file is shown below for your reference.

    Localizing strings in client-side Javascript files

  7. To localize the javascript UI messages, navigate to publisher/site/conf/locales/js folder and update i18nResources.json file with relevant values for the key strings.
  8. Once done, open the API Publisher web application in your browser (https: //<YourHostName>:9443/publisher).
  9. Note that the UI is now changed to Spanish.
