Localization Files in Oracle Content Server 11g

This is not a well-documented thing. Translation to different languages is done through system component “Localization” and we should look for the files in its resource directory: <Middleware_Home>/Oracle_ECM1/ucm/idc/components/Localization/lang/<language code> . My advice is to take a look to all the files to check what’s inside them, but probably, the most useful one of them is ww_strings.xlf, which contains many of the interface strings, as well as the localized values for metadata “Content Type”. These files are XML and you can edit them with the editor of yoour choice.

Some thoughts about “Oracle WebCenterContent 11g Essentials” (1z0-542) exam

I passed this exam recently and got the associated certification. If you’re thinking about it, I’d like to give you a warning: this exam is complex, because questions go far beyond Webcenter Content to cover the whole suite: Site Studio, Document Capture, URM, IP/M and URM.

 

I strongly suggest a close look at the  exam guide and using some of the preparation exams offered by a lot of companies. Good Luck!
