    Greetings,

    We've been working on localizing the administration interface. Most of the localization resources are easily translatable.
    However, we've found out that there are certain template tags that are not open for localization.
    A case in point (just an example, there are plenty others), is within the file
    \Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\PageTemplates\TemplatePages.ascx.
    The tag <strong id="pagesCount2" runat="server"></strong> renders something like "35 pages use" (the number changes according to current site).
    Is there a way to "open up" these tags so we don't get a strange mix of languages on each administration page?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Alex.

    So I guess we CANNOT get access to all text used in the back-end, so we could translate it instead of having a strange mix of English and Italian/German/Spanish/French.
    It's hard to imagine no one has encountered this problem before. Any clue would be appreciated.
    We're required not only to offer a 5-language site, but also a 5-language back-end support.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Chanan.

    Hi Chanan Zass,

    Some parts of the backend section is localized in compiled resources. This means that you cannot change these parts, unless we send you the resources, you translate them and give it back to us in order to compile it. We are soon going to provide a generic way of localizing the entire application.
