Localization of plugin name in Applications & components catalog

Updated: 13 May 2019

You can translate names of plugins in the Applications & components catalog.


The unique plugin name is defined in the code in this statement:

[Plugin("RebarPluginSample")] //RebarSample3 example in StartUpPackage

The translated strings for Tekla Structures components are stored in the file plugins.ail. This file is located in Tekla Structures installation folder, for example C:\Program Files\Tekla Structures\<version>\messages.

Continuing with the previous example, these lines are added at the bottom of plugins.ail:

String_utf8 RebarPluginSample 
    entry = ("esp", "Nombre Plugin Traducido");    
    entry = ("enu", "Translated Plugin Name"); 

The plug-in name in the Applications & components catalog is now translated.
