Changing Languages

Question:

How do I enable one of the alternate locales bundled with Centova Cast?

Answer:

Changing Locales for a Single Account

To change locales for a single account, edit the account settings and change the Locale setting on the Stream tab.

Changing the Default Locale

Centova Cast v3 includes a number of bundled localization packs allowing you to instantly convert Centova Cast into another language.

Please follow these steps to activate a server-wide alternate language.

  1. Review the list of bundled languages available in the /usr/local/centovacast/system/i18n/locale/ directory on your server. If you cannot find this directory on your server, please upgrade Centova Cast.

  2. Edit /usr/local/centovacast/etc/centovacast.conf, locate the line that says:

       LOCALE=en_US
    

    ... and change en_US to your new locale. Note that this must match one of the language codes listed in step 1 above.

  3. Run /etc/init.d/centovacast restart to reload the configuration file.

After restarting Centova Cast, your new language will immediately take effect.

Creating a New Language

If a localization pack is not provided for your language, you may optionally create one yourself. Instructions for doing so are provided in the Centova Cast v3 Localization article.
