Maintain Language Packs

Each time that Blackboard Learn is upgraded, any Language Pack customizations must be made again in the upgraded Language Packs. To assist in this process, compare the contents of the customized Language Pack to that of the upgraded Language Pack. To compare the Language Pack bundles, use the bundle.txt file in the Blackboard Learn Updater. To compare the documentation files, use the Microsoft Word or Madcap Lingo Compare tool. Use the results of the comparisons to make any necessary updates to the upgraded Language Packs.


Maintain language packs during an upgrade

To ensure consistency across releases, the Blackboard Learn Updater compares the existing en_US language pack to the version that is being installed. The differences are noted and output to the following file:

//blackboard/backups/date_of_backup/bundle_diff.txt

For example: //blackboard/backups/20090101-10479/bundle_diff.txt

Here is an example of the bundle_diff.txt file.
