We have a swedish language pack installed provided by HP.
As I understand it - the "boilerplate" -translations provided by HP is a fixed package of translations, e.g. we cant change the translation using any provided tool.
The export/import attributes command does not include translations of the boilerplate
Is this understanding correct?
If we want to change for instance the translation for "Continue Workflow Action" -button, the only way to achieve this is to manipulate
KEXP_Resources.properties in knta_classes.jar package located in
and change CONTINUE_WF_ACTION_BUTTON_CAPTION.TXT=Continue Workflow Action
I am wondering if the Continue Workflow Action was the only thing that do not get translated when you installed the language pack.
Your assuptiom is correct we do not have a tool to migrate the translations.

You are correct, with a few things to keep in mind:
- File KEXP_Resources.properties contains the (base) English translations. If you want to edit the Swedish translations, you should edit file KEXP_Resources_sv.properties that should have been put there when installing the Swedish language pack.
- Editing the properties files is not supported by HP. This will likely break the HP Support agreement, especially with such a sensitive label as "Continue Workflow Action". A longer (or shorter) text might break the page layout, orsome logic in the page might break as it could expect this button to hold this specific text value (though this is quite unlikely to be frank).
As a summary, as of now, HP official position is that directly editing properties files is not officially supported. However, if what you want to change is the Swedish translations because you feel that they are erroneous, feel free to contact HP Support and open a translation defect, so that we can get the translation fixed in a future release.
