hey there!
I need your help.
I want to translate an application. Already followed this guideline http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.1/AdvancedDev/TranslateSplunk , but this does not help me to translate buttons or texts written in JS.

Hi SJanasek,

the TranslateSplunk i18n-functionality does indeed not extract/translate site content in JS. I've found a way to use it either way:

You have to add the entries in your messages.mo / po by hand and have to follow the guidelines you've linked regarding file placement.

You then have to add the following to your js:

require([
...
'splunk.i18n',
...
], function(..., i18n) {

Now you are able to use i18n._("variable_name")in your code when naming buttons/labels and so on. The function will return the value defined by the used language and the variable_name in your .po.

Best regards,
Jens

@JMichaelis 
just like you mentioned, I have successfully translated things written in javascript to japanese language. But I am stuck where I need to translate token values to japanese. I have a token in the dashboard that has value “validation error” and this token is used to display a warning message on input text.
Below is snippet of token in xml, $vuln_input_error$ is the token that I set elsewhere in same xml.
————
<row id=“row1”>
<html depends=“$vuln_input_error$” id=“vuln_error_msg”>
<div id=“vuln_error_container”><code>$vuln_input_error$</code></div></html>
———-
Using the same approach that you have described, I have tried with i18n in js, but token value does not get translated as expected. Do you have an idea on how to translate token values in splunk?
