Mapping OWCS Locales to Clay Tablet Languages

All assets in OWCS require a locale so that you can send them out for translation, as described in Configuring Connector Languages. The OWCS locale maps to a Clay Tablet language code.

For detailed instructions on creating locales in OWCS, refer to the appropriate version of the OWCS documentation at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/webcenter/sites/documentation/index.html.

Recommendation: Use the standard convention of languagecode_territorycode to create an OWCS locale. This facilitates the default mapping of your locale to the Clay Tablet language code. For example, use the two-letter ISO 639-1 language code (such as fr for French) for languagecode, and use the two-letter ISO country code (such as CA for Canada) for territorycode.

To map OWCS languages to Connector languages:
  1. Log in to OWCS and click the Clay Tablet Dashboard application icon .

The Clay Tablet Dashboard opens.

  1. Do one of the following: 
  2. Under Locale Tools, click Locales and Locale Mapping.
  3. Click the Enable Locales menu item.

The Locales and Locale Mapping page opens.

  1. Optional. To edit the OWCS locale:
  2. Click the corresponding edit link.

The Enter new locale name dialog box opens.

  1. Enter an new name for the OWCS locale, and click OK. For detailed instructions on creating a locale in OWCS and enabling the Locale subtype of the Dimension asset type on your site, refer to the OWCS documentation, available at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/webcenter/sites/documentation/index.html.

Recommendation: Use the standard convention of languagecode_territorycode to create an OWCS locale. This facilitates the default mapping of your locale to the Clay Tablet language code. For example, use the two-letter ISO 639-1 language code (such as fr for French) for languagecode, and use the two-letter ISO country code (such as CA for Canada) for territorycode.

  1. In the CT Language Code field, enter the Clay Tablet language code. For a list of Clay Tablet language codes, see Appendix: Language Codes.

Note: If you leave the Clay Tablet language code empty, the Connector creates a default mapping.

  1. Optional. You can hide locales that are not frequently used so that by default they are not displayed on this page or when selecting target locales while collecting assets for translation. To hide a locale so that it is not displayed by default, select the corresponding check box in the Hidden column.

Tip: To display hidden locales, click the Show X Hidden Locales link at the bottom-left corner of the page, where X is the number of hidden locales. The previously hidden locales are displayed at the bottom of the page. To hide them again, click the Hide X Locales link.

  1. Optional. Share the OWCS locale and mapping to a Connector language with additional OWCS sites.
  2. Click the Add more sites icon .

A dialog box opens.

  1. Select the check boxes for the additional OWSC sites where you want to apply this OWCS locale, and click Apply.

Until you save your changes, the OWCS sites you added are displayed in red.

  1. When you are done, click Save Changes, at the top of the page.
