SharePoint 2010 Multi-lingual User Interface

Multi-lingual User Interface—the name says it all! Isn’t it? Yes, SharePoint Server 2010 has introduced the Multi-lingual User Interface (MUI), which is available with every type of site—even the SharePoint Server Central Administration site. The Multi-lingual User Interface should not be considered as a translating tool, instead it is tool that allows users to select a display language for a site and then display the Site title and description, SharePoint out-of-the-box menus and actions, Out-of-the-box columns, Custom columns (list or site), Navigation bar links, and Managed Metadata services in different languages.

In order to use the Multi-lingual User Interface, you should install the language pack on your server. After you install the necessary language packs you will have the option to enable the multilingual user interface on a per site basis using site settings. Once you enable alternate languages, users will see a language picker control in the top right of the page where they can switch the site to the language of their choice. Even SharePoint Foundation 2010 enjoys this feature.

Below given parts of the SharePoint user interface are actually impacted by the Multi-lingual User Interface:
* All the standard SharePoint user interface elements are translated
* Navigation menu’s also support multilingual scenario’s with the MUI – if you switch your language and translate specific menu nodes in your navigation – these changes are language specific
* The headings for list columns
* The managed metadata field type also supports multilingual scenarios.
Note that the English language is used for the following out-of-the-box labels: Site Actions, Browse, Page, Home, Libraries, Lists, Discussions, Recycle Bin, All Site Content.

Take advantage of SharePoint Multi-lingual Interface and other features included in SharePoint family of products including Microsoft SharePoint 2007, SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation, and associated free SharePoint templates and web parts.

BROTIPS

There are so many addictive websites that a person can waste their time on but only a few actually stands out. Brotips.com would be one of them. This website, though seemingly nonsensical, can surprisingly be profound. Aptly described, brotip is like fortune cookies for bros.  Like many bro adventures, this all started because of a girl. One guy failing to score big with a lady, guy ranting about it online and one Dominique Barfield calling him out and saying “Brotip #1: There’s a 99% chance that you’re awesome. Act like it.” After some hours, the line was repeated all over social media sites. That’s when they realized there’s something special there – so the team of bros were made and a website was formed. It’s now filled with clever life advice for modern men. (Ladies, you all can learn tips here too)

Brotips is now more than just a website and fan page on Facebook and Twitter. It has signed up with International Creative Management, which will be giving them possible book and TV deals. Bro-tip on a shirt is also happening, cause you definitely want to remind yourself of your awesome potential in a form of an apparel!

The California Department of Motor Vehicles has its own YouTube account. As of today, it has already uploaded 55 videos that feature tips, traffic trivia, and other advices that will help educate drivers of all ages about good (and not to mention legal) driving skills and etiquette.

And by the way, they also have a myspace account where visitors can post questions regarding traffic rules and stuff.

Hmm… not a bad idea! I think this is a pretty unconventional yet promising way to improve public service. To tell you the truth, I’d rather watch DMV videos than a toilet-flushing cat.
