Changing the Language in fBuilder

Please note: this documentation is a work in progress
If you have any questions about the use of fBuilder 2.4, please email support and we will be happy to assist.


The default language distributed with fBuilder is English, however fBuilder can be translated to any language you choose to make it easier for your IT department. To change the language seen on all of the screens in fBuilder you should translate the following files: Translating the html files is self explainitory. The language.conf file is formated in the following way:

key::value

To translate the file, change the value to the appropriate value for your desired language. Please be aware that some lines span accross two keys and should remain that way because fBuilder must perform some action in the middle of those lines. For example:

pr_013::Choosing this option will have fBuilder grab the most common files
pr_014::and add them to the fingerprint

In fBuilder, this line reads 'Choosing this option will have fBuilder grab the most common files and add them to the fingerprint'. Please be aware of this so that your interface will look correct once the file has been translated.

Example Translation Format (English to French):
w_016::Yes
would become
w_016::Oui

InnerTek Software would gladly accept any translations that you perform for fBuilder and will give credit for your translation in the language.conf file. If you translate fBuilder, please send us a copy of the column.html, fbuilder.html, fbuilderout.html, and language.conf files so we can add the language support for clients in your area!

Fingerprinting Files

Fingerprinting a file in fBuilder will build a checksum of the file fingerprinted. Once the file has been fingerprinted, fBuilder will know if the file has changed (by even ONE character). The benefit is that you can fingerprint some or all of your files and if your machine is compromised, you will know.

When you first enter the fingerprinting utility you can choose the 'Add Common Files' option to add some of the system files that are typically compromised by a root kit. Once these are fingerprinted, you can add any of the files located on your system. When you are viewing the fingerprinted files, you will see a status of each of these files. If a file changes (even by one character) you should see a status that says 'File Changed'. Try it out on a text file by clicking 'Add files' and add 1 file. After submitting, make an edit and click refresh. If you have a file that has been changed by you (or an upgrade), you can click the 'Update' button to update the fingerprint for that file.
