Hello,

I installed the most recent versions of SandCastle and SHFB. In SHFB I selected Language=Deutsch (Deutschland). When creating an document quite at the beginning the builder process shows the following warning:

Generating shared content files (de-DE, Deutsch (Deutschland))...
SHFB: Warning BE0003: Sandcastle shared content for the 'de-DE, Deutsch (Deutschland)' language could not be found.  Using 'en-US, English (US)' defaults.

But in the HelpFileBuilder\SharedContent Folder there seem to be the files present:

HanaBuilderContent_de-DE.xml
PrototypeBuilderContent_de-DE.xml
SharedBuilderContent_de-DE.xml
StopWordList_de-DE.txt
VS2005BuilderContent_de-DE.xml

What can I do get a all my document standard text generated by SandCastle in German, e.g. I'd like to see 'Beispiele' and 'Zusammenfassung' instead of Example respectively Summary.

Thanks, Rainer

The message is referring to the actual Sandcastle resource files which are currently English only.  You need to translate those yourself for a help file that uses the selected language throughout each topic. See this SHFB help topic for more information: http://www.ewoodruff.us/shfbdocs/Index.aspx?topic=html/e2ed6222-c3ee-4c6e-b0f9-fa3c86bc3e2c.htm

Hello Eric,

thanks for quick reply. SandCastle is out for quite a while and I had expected that language files are available, at least for some major languages.

Regards, Rainer
