Portal Internationalization is not stright forward like Web Dynpro's.

Simple approach is Create .properties file in your project and read it from your JSP file or any where.

Go to package explorer navigate to dist -> PORTAL-INF -> private -> classes ->


Entries for this properties file



Write a method in your JSP file to read

String backString = getString(componentRequest, "BACK_STR");

private String getString(IPortalComponentRequest request, String resource_key)



ResourceBundle bundle = ResourceBundle.getBundle("translations", request.getLocale());

return bundle.getString(resource_key);


catch(MissingResourceException e){

return "Null Back "+e.toString();



Hope this is useful to you.
