Localize NetBeans IDE

You can localize the entire NetBeans IDE, including NetBeans Platform, to your language.

Current releases:

Localize NetBeans Platform

You can also localize the NetBeans Platform, which can be done in NetBeans IDE localization. Once the NetBeans Platform is localized, you can develop localized Rich Client Applications just within NetBeans IDE. Please check NetBeans Platform localization page.

Localize UML Modeling Module

UML Modeling Module provides UML modeling features to the NetBeans IDE. These features include forward and reverse engineering, markerless code generation, support of eight different diagrams, requirements gathering, predefined and extensible Design Patterns, and ability to generate Javadoc-style web reports from models. The module allows analysts and designers to design applications using a standard modeling language. Developers are then able to generate source code from the UML model and update the model from changes made in their source code.
Now you can localize //UML Modeling Module to your language.

Localize Menus and Labels of your Rich-Client Application

Localizing such basic menus and labels is a part of NetBeans IDE localization. If NetBeans Platform localization is not provided for your language and you need to localize them, please read this document.
