Hi Experts,

I created one app for monitoring, in that app have many dashboards. In that dashboards label and title (present in XML file ) come in English.
Is in splunk have any conf file to change the language of dashboards?
I tried ja_JP for Japanese language but its modified only default fields.

Hello, @arun_kant_sharma.

I had a look to this pb myself some time ago.

Here are the steps you can use in order to translate xml labels and titles.

  1. Create a lookup in order to translate the labels and titles, based on the locale (ja-JP, fr-FR, en-US, ...)

It should look like :
locale,label,title1
fr-FR,phrase,titre1
en-US,sentence,title1

Add as many columns as needed to fit the number of titles.

  1. Add dd as many coa search to your dashboard, looking like this :


    |inputlookup yourlookup.csv


    search locale=$env:locale|s$

    $result.title1$
    $result.label$

  2. Add some js to your dashboard

In the js, you can get the content of the tokens, see http://dev.splunk.com/view/webframework-developapps/SP-CAAAEW3

From there, you can replace the content of the <label> tag of the dashboard, and replace it with the value of LabelToken.

In case you need to change the title of different panels, add an id in the <panel> tags, in order to get the right panel.

Thanks for your answer.
So it simply means, for handle multiple language in a Splunk Dashboard, we use the same approach that usually we use to make other multi language website. Splunk have no conf file for handle it ?
