How to configure different languages for MailEnable web mail and web administration


The following article explains how to create your own language translation for the webmail and web administration clients or edit the default translations.


MailEnable uses text files stored in the Mail Enable\bin directory for the language translations for webmail and web administration. For webmail the file names are formatted as:

xx is the two character language code. So for the English translation this code is en. For web administration the format is similar:

To create your own language copy the English translation file and name it with the appropriate two character language code. Then open it in Notepad or your favourite text editor and change the English text to the required language. When finished you are able to the add this language as a visible language to webmail by editing the LANGUAGES.TAB file in the same directory. To add your language, add a line in the file formatted as:

xx[tab]Language Name

Where xx is your two character language code, [tab] is a tab character, and the language name is what the language is called. When you save your changes you will then see the language available as an option in the login page in webmail.

Updates to the MailEnable program may include extra items that need translating. So after upgrading your software you can check to see if there are any extra items by comparing the English translation to your own. All new items will be added to the end of the file.

If you make changes to the translations installed with MailEnable they will be overwritten if you reinstall or upgrade MailEnable.
