Question:

How can I use German Language in SOI Jasper Reports

Environment:

SOI 4.0 CUM1 Jasper Reporting

Answer:

The reason for not filling the popup window is a missing properties file in the server config. The Solution is as follows:

1. Login as superuser with english setting and export one of the available properties files:

2. Save that export and unzip the file. Rename both files as desired ( here _de_DE instead of _en_US ):

3. Alter both files, change the xml and enter _de_DE as well in there (replace _en_US):

4. If you need you can translate all entries in the old .data file. ( note needed for UK english ):

5. Save everything and make a zip archive from the root folder:
