YetaWF.Languages Package


This package implements language management and localization services.

The LanguageSettings.json file in the website's Data folder contains a site's defined and available languages. The default language must be defined as en-US.

The Languages Module is used to display all languages supported by a YetaWF instance.


  "LanguageSection": {
    "Languages": [
        "Id": "en-US",
        "ShortName": "English",
        "Description": "US English"
        "Id": "de-De",
        "ShortName": "Deutsch",
        "Description": "German"

The default site language is defined in the YetaWF instance's AppSettings.json file.

    "P": {
      . . .
      "Default": {
        . . .
        "LanguageId": "en-US",
        . . .

When adding/removing languages (NEVER remove en-US) in the file LanguageSettings.json, the site must be upgraded so all data models are updated with the new language. New languages will inherit the default en-US text. Languages that are removed will be removed from any affected database tables. See Upgrading In Development for more information.
