Merge Language Packs

You can merge two Language Packs that have the same language and culture pair. This enables you to focus translation efforts on specific areas, and then consolidate translations into a single Language Pack.

To merge two Language Packs:

  1. In the CSM Administrator main window, select the Globalization category, and then select Manage Language Packs.
  2. Select a Language Pack bundle, and then click Merge.
    The Merge Language Pack wizard opens.
  3. Click Next.
    The Identify Language Pack page opens.
  4. Select the Language Pack to merge into.
  5. Click Next.
    The Identify Merge Options page opens.
  6. Select an option to handle duplicate values from the source language:
    • Select which Language Pack to take target values from.
    • Select the Allow me to choose with targets to keep to control how duplicate or conflicting values are handled during the merge.
  7. Optionally, select the Delete the Language Pack that is being merged from check box. This deletes the Language Pack when the wizard is complete.
  8. Click Next.
  9. If you selected the Allow me to choose with targets to keep option on the previous page, the Handle Duplicate Source Values page opens if the following types of duplicate values are found.
    Language Pack #1Language Pack #2Merge Result

    Empty target values are automatically merged with a source value if one exists in either Language Pack. If not, the blank values are retained for the source and target values.

  10. Click Next.
  11. On the Summary page, review the options you selected.
  12. Select Back to change your options; select Finish to complete the wizard.
