Message Properties Files

Following the convention cited above, the name of the Spanish-language (Español) message properties file intended for use in Mexico would be rcmsgs_es_mx.properties.

The entries in this file are grouped according to function. If you want to create a local language version of Redcell, edit the message properties file and translate the message portion of each entry into the language appropriate to your site.

The Message Properties file can be edited with any text editor that can render the characters you need. Double-byte characters are allowed, but Redcell supports only left-to-right text rendering. The illustration below shows an example of an edited message properties file.
