Table 1. I18N_SETTINGS Standard Choice Values
Standard Choice Values Value Description Description
I18N_DEFAULT_ LANGUAGE Read-only Once you set up internationalization and localization in the multi-agency configuration, the language you select for the Default Language field is automatically populated here.
I18N_SECOND_ LANGUAGE Enter one of these values: ar_AE (Arabic) en_AU (Australian English) en_US (US English) This value defines the second language for the agency. If you set up a second language, the WorkflowTask Detail portlet in Civic Platform displays two Comments fields: one is in the primary language and the other in the second language. Citizen Access (ACA) users can see the Comments field in the language they choose from the Citizen Access Login page if Civic Platform supports this language.
CURRENCY_LOCALE Enter one of these values following the format in I18N_DEFAULT_LANGUAGE

ar_AE (for Arabic)

en_AU (for Australian English)

en_US (for US English)

es_MX (for Mexico Spanish)

zh_TW (for Traditional Chinese)

This value defines the currency for the agency no matter which language a user selects when he logs in. For example, the en_US value represents the dollar currency used in the United States; the ar_AE value represents the dirham currency used in the United Arab Emirates.You can set the default language value to a different value than the currency local. For example, you can set the default language to es_MX, but set the currency locale as en_US. That means Spanish is the additional language, but the US Dollar ($) is the currency symbol.
DATE_FORMAT MM/dd/yyyy (default)

yyyy/MM/dd

dd/mm/yyyy

This value specifies the date format for the I18N_DEFAULT_LANGUAGE value. NOTE: If an agency is providing multiple language support and you need to define this date format, yyyy/MM/dd, for your additional language, see For Multiple Languages.

yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss

This value defines how the date and time format can display. The MM/dd/yyyy represents the Month/day/year, and the HH:mm:ss represents the Hours:minutes:seconds. For example, July 26, 2011 at 6:20:16 a.m. could be formatted to 07/26/2011 06:28:16.
Note:

If an agency is providing multiple language support and you need to define this date format, yyyy/MM/dd, for your additional language then see For Multiple Languages.

For Multiple Languages

Only DATE_FORMAT and DATE_TIME_FORMAT and support this alternate value in an additional language. If an agency is providing multiple language support and you need to define this date format, yyyy/MM/dd, for your additional language, then you must follow these unique steps. For example, if English is your primary language and Chinese is the additional language, follow these steps:

  1. Configure for English all of the I18N_SETTINGS values and Submit.

    The I18N_SETTINGS page saves the values in English.

  2. In the Language drop‑down list, switch to Chinese, for example, switch to Chinese. If Chinese is not yet available in the drop-down list, then you need complete setting up I18N_SETTINGS and return to these steps.

    The I18N_SETTINGS page refreshes and displays the values you set in English. But, the page is available for you to enter Values for DATE_FORMAT and DATE_TIME_FORMAT.

  3. Enter the alternate supported Values of yyyy/MM/dd for both the DATE_FORMAT and DATE_TIME_FORMAT and click Submit to save the values for Chinese.


    Note:

    The yyyy/MM/dd is the only other supported date format.


  4. Switch the Language back to English from the drop‑down list and notice that the DATE_FORMAT is different than what you set for Chinese.
