Altova RaptorXML+XBRL Server 2024

You can create a localized version of the RaptorXML application for any language of your choice. Five localized versions (English, German, Spanish, French, and Japanese) are already available in the <ProgramFilesFolder>\Altova\RaptorXMLXBRLServer2024\bin\ folder. These five language versions therefore do not need to be created.


Create a localized version in another language as follows:


1.Generate an XML file containing the resource strings. Do this with the exportresourcestrings command. The resource strings in the generated XML file will be one of the five supported languages: English (en), German (de), Spanish (es), French (fr), or Japanese (ja), according to the argument used with the command.

2.Translate the resource strings from the language of the generated XML file into the target language. The resource strings are the contents of the <string> elements in the XML file. Do not translate variables in curly brackets, such as {option} or {product}.

3.Contact Altova Support to generate a localized RaptorXML DLL file from your translated XML file.

4.After you receive your localized DLL file from Altova Support, save the DLL in the <ProgramFilesFolder>\Altova\RaptorXMLXBRLServer2024\bin\ folder. Your DLL file will have a name of the form RaptorXMLXBRLServer_lc.dll. The _lc part of the name contains the language code. For example, in RaptorXMLXBRLServer_de.dll, the de part is the language code for German (Deutsch).

5.Run the setdeflang command to set your localized DLL file as the RaptorXML application to use. For the argument of the setdeflang command, use the language code that is part of the DLL name.


Note:Altova RaptorXML+XBRL Server is delivered with support for five languages: English, German, Spanish, French, and Japanese. So you do not need to create a localized version of these languages. To set any of these five languages as the default language, use the CLI's setdeflang command.
