To modify the generated text for WebHelp transformations, you need to create a DITA-OT extension plugin that uses the dita.xsl.messages extension point. The following procedure is for changing English labels, but you can adapt it for any language:

  1. Create a com.oxygenxml.webhelp.localization plugin directory inside the DITA-OT-DIR/plugins/ location.
  2. Create a plugin.xml file inside that com.oxygenxml.webhelp.localization directory with the following content:
    <plugin id="com.oxygenxml.webhelp.localization">
        <require plugin="com.oxygenxml.webhelp.classic"/>
        <require plugin="com.oxygenxml.webhelp.responsive"/>
      
        <feature extension="dita.xsl.strings" file="webhelp-extension-strings.xml"/>
    </plugin>
  3. Create a webhelp-extension-strings.xml file with the following content:
    <langlist>
        <lang xml:lang="en"    filename="strings-en-us.xml"/>
        <lang xml:lang="en-us"    filename="strings-en-us.xml"/>
    </langlist>
  4. Copy the strings you want to change from the translation files to the strings-en-us.xml file. Make sure you leave the name attribute unchanged because this is the key used to look up the string. A sample content might be:
    <strings xml:lang="en-US">
      <str name="Figure">Fig</str>
      <str name="Draft comment">ADDRESS THIS DRAFT COMMENT</str>
    </strings>
  5. Use the Run DITA-OT Integrator transformation scenario found in the DITA Map section in the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) dialog box.
