Easy to Localize
SQL for ArcGIS® Pro interface uses English language by default but will automatically switch to a different language if you install a localization file.
SQL for ArcGIS Pro can use the same localization files used by Manifold® Release 9 and Manifold Viewer, so all languages available as localization files for those products are instantly available for SQL for ArcGIS Pro.
How to Use Your Langauge
A localization file is just a small file like ui.fr.txt (for French) that contains translations for all text in the interface. Take the localization file for the language you want and put it into the same installation folder as the SQL for ArcGIS Pro manifold.exe executable you will be using. Easy!
- Download the ui.zip file. Unzip it to get files for different languages.
- Copy the localization file for your language, for example, ui.fr.txt for French.
- Paste it into the same folder as the manifold.exe you will use, for example, within the bin64 and bin installatSQL for ArcGIS Pro ion folders.
- If Windows is set to that language, for example, to French, Manifold will automatically launch using that ui.fr.txt file.
- If Windows is set to English, but you want Manifold in French, launch Manifold once in English and then in the Tools - Options dialog choose fr in the Localization box. The next time you launch Manifold it will use French.
The instructions above work for both Manifold and for Viewer. The same localization files work for either Manifold or Viewer.
The ui.zip file provides a collection of localization files created by Manifold users. It includes files for Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (simplified, Mandarin), Dutch, Estonian, Filipino (Tagalog), French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish languages. The Italian, Malay, and Polish localization files are experimental examples of automatic translations done by Google.
"Compliments to the Manifold team for building such a robust piece of software. I have been translating error messages that I have never seen and probably never will see!" - Forum post
Translate Manifold into a New Language
Any user can take the standard, English default.ui.txt file and provide their own translation for whatever language they want. The current default.ui.txt file is included within the ui.zip file collection of localization files (click the link to download). The latest, up-to-date canonical English default.ui.txt file also is published in portable SQL for ArcGIS Pro installation packages.

When a German localization file is placed in the SQL for ArcGIS Pro installation folder, on launch SQL for ArcGIS Pro will look at the Windows language setting and if Windows has been set to German, SQL for ArcGIS Pro will automatically load the German localization file. SQL for ArcGIS Pro can also use a different language while Windows stays in English. SQL for ArcGIS Pro, Manifold Viewer, and Manifold Release 9 include a built-in Edit Localization File dialog that makes translations easier.
