Thread: Internationalization/Localization issue in Pentaho Report Designer 3.8.3

    Post Internationalization/Localization issue in Pentaho Report Designer 3.8.3

    Hi,

    We are using BI Server 4.1 GA Enterprise Edition .

    We translated all the reports in 7 different languages,and for that we used property files.
    If the translation has any special character present it's not get displayed properly on Browser.
    For Spanish “Informe de códigos de barras de actives” is got displayed instead of “Informe de códigos de barras de actives”
    Hence, for special characters translationis inaccurate.
    Please let us know if this a reported issue for pentaho? Is Pentaho unable to identify special characters?

    Is any workaround possible?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Your properties files must be encoded properly. The file must be ISO-8859-1 or ASCII and any character not expressable in that encoding must be encoded via the \uXXXX escape sequence.

    Use a proper properties editor and you avoid many of the pitfalls of the encoding problems.
    Here is a rather large list of tools you can use: http://attesoro.org/similar.html

    Just start out with an empty properties file where only the keys are defined, and then use any of these editors to fill in the values.

    So far parameter cannot be internationalized. We have it in our JIRA system as one thing that we need to add, but so far have not had the time to address this.
