This extension allows you change the Share locale language from within your Share display. It would be useful when localizing a dashlet and Share itself or collaborating with language-different colleagues. You have: -custom login page which has a select box for locale -dashlet called "My Share Locale"
The mechanism is simple, the locale you select is saved to a cookie in your machine and Alfresco Surf Spring framework always reads the cookie when rendering each page by LocaleResolver class. This extension support by default 7 languages(English, French, Germany, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Japanese). You can add easily other language because locale code is just a string. An AMP file is provided as well as the source code.
