Problem with localization of DITA OT strings for responsive Webhelp output

Post by ckabstein » Tue Feb 18, 2020 1:18 pm

Hi,

I don't know how often I've read https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... responsive or the 21.1 version of the docs.
It is no problem to change the strings of the Webhelp Responsive plug-in, but when it comes to the DITA OT ones that are located in org.dita.base/xsl/common (there's a typo, by the way in the 22 documentation, translation files list, second paragraph - DITA-OT-DIR/plugins/org.dita.basexsl/common), I just can't overwrite them with my extension plug-in.
I've got the plugin.xml file, I've got the webhelp-extension-strings.xml file, I've copied the strings from org.dita.base to the extension plug-in strings-en-us.xml and to all the other language files (e. g. strings-de-de.xml and strings-ja-jp.xml) and re-translated them, run the DITA OT Integrator, but it just won't work. Am I missing a specific step?

Thanks,
Christina

Indeed, the path to the translation files is wrong. Thank you.

I don't have any problem to overwrite generated strings from DITA-OT translation files (generated text for <note>, <fig>, and <table> elements) by following the Modifying the Existing Strings procedure.

I have tried with Oxygen 21.1 that bundled DITA-OT 3.3.1.

Could you send us the DITA-OT extension plugin used to modify generated text on support@oxygenxml.com. I can try to take a look.
