IBM Donates Translations for Eclipse 3.2.1

Community Bulletin

IBM is pleased to contribute translations for the Eclipse Project, the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) Project, the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) Project, the Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Project, the Eclipse Modeling Project, the Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP) Project and for several subprojects of the Eclipse Tools Project for the Callisto releases.

The language packs are distributed as zips, which you can install by downloading the zip file and unzipping into your Eclipse directory before starting Eclipse. These zips appear on each project's download pages. Please read the details below concerning the zip files and their contents before using these translations.

Some projects may choose to add these to their update sites as well. Each NL feature description, that would appear when browsing an update site, contains a list of the language translations provided by that NL feature. NL features are new features that did not exist for the component prior to translation. NL features parallel the set of features defined by the component and contain the NL fragments that in turn contain the translations for the component's plugins.

Translation Pack Zip File Types

For all the projects there are these types of language pack zip files:

NLpack1
Contains the NL fragments and the NL features that contain those fragments for: German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.
NLpack2

NLpack2a
