Hi all,

I searched a lot for some clear tutorial about to accomplish this task but I found nothing.... and so I hope in newsgroup

I have an rcp and I would like to create some versions with different languages.

Now, I'm not interested in string externalization, that task is clear and well explained... I would like to know how translate eclipse platform parts, i.e. dialogs, help, welcome page etc...

But, obviously, I would like to find the easier and reusable way, perhaps should I use fragments? if yes, could you explain me how?
I need steps to follow because there is lack of documentation about this argument.

Thanks in advance and best regards

we use fragments to provide "language packs". If you really just want
the translations for the platform plugins, why not check out Babel.
http://www.eclipse.org/babel

They provide many language packs for the eclipse platform already.

Yes I've heard about fragments but what I'm looking for is an easy "method" to build my rcp in different languages and either for windows or linux.

I have not ever found a compelte turorial that covers these common tasks...
And even if I know that fragments are a possibile solution, I'm not able to use them without a clear documentation, perhaps it is my personal limit...

thanks
