Hi,

I had previously posted this question in the Babel forum ( http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=170247& amp;start=0&) but perhaps this is the appropriate place.

I've created a plug-in using Eclipse RCP 3.5 but needed to translate those English labels like Yes/No/Cancel/etc to my own language. In order to do that, I've downloaded the appropriate Babel language pack in

http://download.eclipse.org/technology/babel/babel_language_ packs/galileo.php

namely BabelLanguagePack-eclipse-....zip and unzipped the content to my eclipse/dropins folder. I launched the application again in Eclipse IDE and it worked, pratically all labels were translated to my language. However, when I exported my application using the export wizard and then launched it, the labels were in English again. I've tried copy/paste the content of the zip file into the directory where the application had been exported (although I wasn't sure if I was inserting exactly in the correct place) and I've tried adding the .jars as dependencies of my project but it didn't work.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Ricardo Almeida

Hi Ricardo,

It seems like the babel plugins are not included in your product export. If
you look in your final product plugins directory, are they included?

Did you include the new stuff in your build.properties or .product file?

No, they are not, but I just copied them into that directory but it still doesn't work. Since the .zip contained the features folder as well, I copied this one too, next to the plugins folder in my final product directory but it didn't help either.

Kind regards,
Ricardo

Yes, I think I did what I was supposed to do:

- in build.properties, I included the line "lib/eclipse/" under "bin.includes = ..." (because the content of .zip was extracted to a folder called lib, which is inside my project's folder)
- in .product file and under the Dependencies tab, I clicked "Add necessary plugins" and some (but only 20 of a total of 215 that came in the .zip) of the babel language plugins were automatically added.

Best
Ricardo

Problem solved!

I appears that I also had to add "lib/eclipse/plugins" (the folder where the babel plugins are) to the classpath, in the Runtime tab. I don't understand why Eclipse can't have 1 place where we list all the dependencies of the application and that's it..

Thanks!

Ricardo
