After updating to Oracle Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0 update 10 or higher, EdtiLive! might fail to translate its user interface (UI) to non-English languages. This issue affects EditLive! versions 6.7 or higher.
When using the Locale property (http://docs.ephox.com/display/EditLive/Locale+Property) to set to a non-English language, EditLive! might only translate actions associated with EditLive! plugins (such as Commenting or Insert HTML Fragment). See screenshot attached below (EditLive__Partial_UI_Translation.png) for a sample EditLive! UI capture.
EditLive! will display any untranslated UI items in English. The editor functionality is not affected.
An update in the Oracle Java Runtime Environment prevents EditLive! from loading the necessary language packs for UI translation properly. Therefore, the editor falls back to English as the default language.
Ephox has produced a set of new language files that are compatible with the Java Runtime Environment. To install them, first download the zip file (languages.zip) attached in this article. Unzip the file to a location of your choice, which will produce a folder called "languages." In your EditLive! installation directory (usually called editlivejava), delete the current "languages" folder and paste the previously unzipped folder in its place.
The new language files are applicable to EditLive! version 6.7 or higher and all JRE versions supported by EditLive!
To provide seamless integration, future release of EditLive! will include those language files aforementioned as part of the default installation.
Currently, the modification is available in EditLive! early access build version 18.104.22.168 or later. More information about early access build of EditLive! can be found here: http://editlive.com/releases/early-access.
Ephox has also filled a bug report to Oracle regarding this issue. A fix will be dependent on Oracle resolution of the problem.
