Most applications use a multitude of resources which are often defined in a distributed fashion, such as texts, labelled images or URLs. Often resources are needed in which certain parts will be dynamically replaced. Moreover, multilingual design of an application is often essential. All this adds the dimension of sorting or country-specific labelling. Mostly these resources are to be found in the program code of the application or swapped out into a large number of different files. The localized access to these resources must be implemented manually, which implies susceptibility to errors, reduced flexibility and functionality. The zen Platform provides integrated solutions for all kinds of application of localized resources.
Any application developed on the basis of the zen Platform basically supports multiple languages. The zen Platform manages all resources centrally in a repository. The different resources are automatically supplied in the respective language and output. The following resources are directly supported:
All resources are completely separate from the application logic and are jointly managed in a repository. This centralized storage even allows applications to be translated outside your offices, independent of the development. Each translation is simply entered into the centralized repository as a new language. The application itself can be immediately executed in the new language.
