ADW - Missing non-English translation for Site roles values in Manage Permission page


There are missing translations for SiteRole value in Manage Permission page for all supported non-English language.

Steps to reproduce
1. Login to ADW home page, from user profile, change the language to anything except English. For example, Swedish/Svenska. Also, my web browser, Chrome still set to English locale.
2. Locate any files/folder in your dashboard file libraries.
3. When right-clicking on a file, and choosing the permissions button, a dialog is shown.

Most text in this dialog is translated, however, in the column listing the roles of the different permissions, the value of the SiteRole is always the english value, for instance "SiteConsumer".


They want the same behavior In Alfresco Share, where these values are translated according to the selected value. In Swedish for instance, "SiteConsumer" would be "Konsument". The customer's wish is for this translation to be implemented (they are using Swedish/Svenska in specific), so the user experience is more similar to Alfresco Share.

Please see attached screenshot when displayed Manage Permission page in

  • Swedish/Svenska

  • Chinese

  • Portuguese

Although I only gave 3 examples, this issue is reproduciblein any non-English language translation and therefore should be fixed in all non-English language which is missing the SiteRole value translation.

Thank you, I will check the ADF files. We probably have translations for those terms in our DB.

I have just merged the changes to the ADF to support permission translations, we may need to have other languages for the next release, no changes to ADW/ACA translations required

Hello , I believe these strings may need to be externalised. I am unable to find -for example the string SiteManager in any of the UI files in ADW, ADF, Alfresco-App or the Repo (Ent and Com). perhaps you can help us?
