Locale directory

Difference and functions between locale folder in “root” directory to locale folder in “lib” directory. And why they are located in different location.

Hi @lazyfox, the difference is this: the application’s locale folder contains localized strings to be used only by that application. /lib/pkp/locale/ contains localized strings that can be used by any of the PKP applications (e.g. shared between Open Journal Systems and Open Monograph Press).

(One implication of this is that strings in /lib/pkp/locale should not apply only to journals (or to monographs or to conferences…).)
