JSF Internationalization Example

JSF reads the language-specific property file automatically depends on the default language sets in the browser. We need to create a property file for each language our project is supporting. For example, if your project supports two locals, French, German and the default English locale. Click ISO 631-1CODES to find the locale for each language.

Constant.properties (Default, English Local)

Constant_fr.properties (French Local)

Constant_de.properties (GERNAL local)
