- Step 1: Verify that a
localeuser attribute exists, a manifest file exists in the project, and that manifest file has a localization_settings parameter.
- Step 2: Verify that every field/lookml object to be localized has a label, group_label, or description. Localization currently only works on the values in those parameters.
- Step 3: Verify there is both a
en.strings) and a
<target_locale>.stringsfile. Important: both files need to contain the strings we want to localize.
For example, if we want to localize
es id , there needs to be an entry for
"id" = "es id" in es_ES.strings, AND an entry for
"id" = "id" in en.strings. If there is not a value in both, then nothing will localize.
- An important note: the strings in both the .strings and labels are case sensitive.
