Using Sakai with Multiple Locales

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

2:45pm to 3:30pm (PST)

Sakai is now in use all over the world. Many institutions use Sakai in a language other then English. Sakai is very configurable and able to support localization in a variety of different locales. There are still challenges, however, if you try to support multiple locales in the same Sakai server at the same time.

This session will quickly introduce the topic of localization in Sakai to those who might not be familiar with how it is done. The session will then turn its focus on the problems that come up when you try to support multiple locales in the same Sakai system at the same time.

Some of the topics that will be covered:

  • Date / Time problems
  • Grading Scales
  • Non-property file localization (.xml, .html)
  • Roles
  • Site Types
