The language used by IMSMANG is of two types:

  1. the language that the data is entered in (blue arrow)
  2. the language that the application use (red arrows).

Data language

When the users see squares instead of expected characters e.g. in the Country structure then you need to create a new folder called fallback in C:\IMSMAng\java\lib\fonts and copy the fonts for the language files there.

Application language

Note.jpg To modify the localisation files, you should use Rosetta-J. For information on using Rosetta-J, contact your GICHD IM advisor.

When the users see squares instead of expected characters in application parts e.g. menus and labels then there is something wrong with the translation files in C:\IMSMAng\client\resources\com\fgm\imsma\lexicon for the language that is specified in the Regional settings on the user's computer.

If you would like to run IMSMANG in a language other than English, you will need to enter translations into the following properties files:


These two files are stored as files and are not imported into the database nor included in the database backup. Please, refer to Backup and Restore.

The third file is created by the Export Translations in the File menu and should be imported back into the database after the translation is done.
