Text changes in Adminapp

To change texts in the Adminapp, also use strings_xx.properties files - although the default files are JSON files.

  • 1.
    Open app/adminapp/i18n/*.json (* set a language code). The indentation of the keys corresponds to the entries in the strings properties file, e.g.
  •  "user": {
        "tabs": {
          "overview" : "Overview", 

     in en.json corresponds to user.tabs.overview in strings_en.properties.

  • 2.
    Find the desired existing translation in the json file via search (e.g. "Generate IAK Letter") or by a key that makes sense (e.g. user >> mtan >> number >> label)
  • 3.
    Place the corresponding key as described in step 1 in the strings properties file.
  • 4.
    Re-login as administrator.
