Language and locale descriptors in the product and in Help
The client that Finance and Operations apps use supports multiple languages and locales. To add custom Help content for one or more locales to the in-product Help pane, you must make sure that both the following conditions are met:
The value of the ms.locale property in each HTML file matches the locale of the content.
For example, the German (Germany) content must have a setting of ms.locale: de-de.
On the custom Help website, the content is in a folder has the same name as the locale.
For example, the German (Germany) content must be in a folder that is named de-de.
Languages and descriptors
The following table maps the language names between the Finance and Operations client and the GitHub repositories (repos) that contain translated Microsoft Help content.
Languages, translations, and adaptations
Microsoft teams create content in English (United States). That content is then translated into several languages, and the translated content is made available in a public GitHub repo for each language.
To maximize reuse of translations, translation services treat some languages as variants of another language. For example, German for Austria and German for Germany are considered so closely related that they are treated as variants of each other. Therefore, you can use the files in the Dynamics-365-Operations.de-de GitHub repo as a starting point for both German (Germany) content and German (Austria) content.
When you extend the in-product Help pane, you must assign indexes for the relevant locales. For more information, see Customize language fallback.
