Language Packs

The Alfresco Community 3.4.d release includes language packs for French, German, Japanese, Italian, and Spanish.  The language packs included with this version have been through an engineering QA cycle, but are still under linguistic testing.

Please note that the source localized files are encoded in ASCII and the special and accented characters are displayed using escape sequences.
The source files have been renamed using the corresponding locale for each language.
If components such as RM, WCM, etc. are installed with the language packs, strings coming from these components will appear in English because these components have not been localized for this version.


For download and installation instructions, refer to the Download and Install Alfresco page.
