Translating SharePoint URL Shortener

Feb 23, 2010 at 12:49 PM

We recently have found this nice piece of software for our SharePoint intranet. But we need to translate it in french. We have added the following files :

liebrandurlshorteneradminpages.fr.resx in the 12/Config/AdminResources folder

liebrandurlshortenerpages.fr.resx in the 12/Config/Resources folder

liebrandurlshortener.fr.resx in the 12/Resources folder

 

But we ran into two problems:

1 - The resources files are not copied in the bin directory. The solution from a previous dicussion is working to solve that case (stsadm -o copyappbincontent).

2 - The new resource file is not used even when the system is configured to be in french.

 

I think we are missing something to make the system work.  Do you see what can be missing from our code?  Also, we are using an other webpart for the survey who work well in multiple languages.  This webpart use an easier structure for the translation.  You may like to look at it to improve URL Shortener (http://darrenjohnstone.net/2008/09/15/sharepoint-quick-surveys-103-regionalisation/).  The copyappbincontent is not needed with this webpart and the translation is contained in only one place which make it easier to maintain.
