Hi there

I'm not official TechSmith, but from looking at the code, it would seem that the SmartPlayer should adapt to the following languages:
  • Chinese
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Japanese
  • Spanish
I'm guessing your language isn't working?

I'd say that as a first step, you need to play the video via the SmartPlayer and note what language is appearing. 

Once you sort that, you would then most likely locate the file named: techsmith-smart-player.min.js (I find mine inside a folder named "scripts" after I render output.

If you open that file using something like Windows Notepad, you should be able to use the search tool to locate the different elements of whatever language is being presented. Then you can substitute what you want for those instances.

Note that once you do this, you should save the modified file in case you need to render again. Subsequent renders will likely wipe out your changes.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thank you Rick

As you explain we have also doing same process. But we render same build again then we are doing same process again and again everytime. So as per your reply can we kept that script save in other place and we use later everytime we render that build? It will not effect in other place, mean layout or anywhere?

We have see other language tooltip text in this scrip as you mentioned, but we dont know how to apply for mention languages. We see only english tooltip when we run build in player. But in script we see localised text, also english text. So please explain me step how to apply other language tooltip.

Is there any other way that we create player tooltip and aply easily wher we render build?

Thank you so much for your reply. And its really helpfull for me.

I'm not sure what you are referring to by:
Player ToolTip
Could you provide a screenshot of this?

As far as changing the language used by the TechSmith Smart Player for a Camtasia production follow these steps:
  1. Open Camtasia production folder
  2. Open the following HTML file in a text editor: (Windows) [production-name]_player.html - (Mac) media/index_player.html
  3. Locate this line of JavaScript:
  4. Change that line to the language you want to use.  These are the options:
  5. Open the following XML document in a text editor: (Windows) [production-name]_config.xml - (Mac) media/xmpFile.xml
  6. Search for the language code written in by Camtasia (probably en-US for English).  You should find 2 instances
  7. Replace both with the language you want.  Here are the options as of right now.
English - en-US
German - de-DE
Japanese - ja-JP
French - fr-FR
Spanish - es-ES Chinese - zh-CN
Once you view the project on your web server you should see the new language.
