Since Plesk Expand is a web application, a single instance may simultaneously target an international, multi-language audience owing to the possibility of localization. Localization means a process of adapting software for a particular country or region, which is, generally speaking, translating Plesk Expand user's environment to a language spoken in the country or region.
A subset of Plesk Expand user's environment adjusted to a particular language and culture is called locale. On the implementation level, a particular locale is represented by the corresponding language pack (LP). Language pack is an installable file containing all the resource files and processing instructions necessary for installing a particular locale to an existing Plesk Expand instance. In other words, LP is a packed set of files containing all the language-related data that define the appearance of a particular user environment component. For details on creating and installing language packs, refer to the Creating LP and Installing LP sections.
Plesk Expand locale and language pack names follow the RFC 1766 standard in the format "<languagecode2>-<country/regioncode2>", where <languagecode2> is a lower-case two-letter code derived from ISO 639-1 and <country/regioncode2> is an upper-case two-letter code derived from ISO 3166. For example, U.S. English locale is named "en-US". To see a list of locale names supported by Plesk Expand, refer to the Appendix B. Locale Codes.
By default, Plesk Expand is shipped with only U.S. English language pack. Parallels also releases LPs for 7additional languages, which are:
These additional language packs are available at the Language Support page of the Parallels official web site.
This Plesk Expand Localization Kit is designed to allow third-party developers to create their own localizations for Plesk Expand.
The developers are free to share their translation with other Plesk Expand users. Also they can contribute the translation to Parallels, where it will be repacked to the standard Plesk Expand language pack form and then published on the Parallels official web site.
