Setting up the Basics for a Drupal Multilingual site: Languages and UI Translation

by Kristen Pol | June 2012 | Drupal

Drupal's default installation is in English. But, as you'll soon see, it can be configured to handle other languages as well. Creating a multilingual website expands your audience, and studies have shown that users are more likely to buy products and services on a website when content is presented in their native language. Coupled with the fact that there are many more non-English native speakers than English native speakers, you should see the full value of creating a site that supports other languages.

This article by Kristen Pol, author of Drupal 7 Multilingual Sites starts with setting up a test site. Once the site is ready, we'll add several new languages and configure language detection so that we can view each language using different URLs. With the detection in place, we will enable a switcher block to easily navigate between each language.

After the language settings are done, we'll move on to translating the Drupal interface. First we will translate manually by grabbing files from localize.drupal.org, and then we'll configure the site for automatic updates. Once the contributed translations are in place, we will learn how to add and change translated UI strings as well as how to contribute these translations back to the Drupal community. The last part of the interface translation section deals with changing English strings and reusing strings on other sites.

Setup and Configuration of the Workflow for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 Administration

by Marco Carvalho | January 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

The workflow system in Dynamics AX 2009 has been completely redesigned. In short, it is a web application that implements the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) framework.

If you have had experience setting up and defining custom workflow configurations in Microsoft SharePoint, then you will be familiar with the same terminology and interface.

  • The prerequisites required for Workflow
  • How to install Workflow
  • How to appropriately set up and configure Workflow
