Foreign language support?

Sep 3, 2013 at 5:14 PM
Hi all,

I've done everything to deploy and activate your feature but I am not able to see the custom workflow action in Sharepoint Designer. Since I found at least one comment here also describing problems with non-english version, there might be a problem?

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 (german) on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (english)
  • English language pack is installed
    Sharepoint Designer 2010 (german)
Please help me!

Hi Dekstar,

You are correct that the reason it is not showing up is because of the different language. However, you should still be able to make it work, you will just need to copy a file on each for your web front end servers.

If you go to the path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1033\Workflow

Above is the english folder, in that folder you should see a file called "CustomSPD.ACTIONS" copy this file to:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1031\Workflow

When I get time to do updates on these I will build support for the other languages.
