Languages in WorkStation

​At the main installation, WorkStation contains English and languages that are avaílable at the time. To support a language, WorkStation needs the specific language package.

You can change the display language from within WorkStation. The changes take effect when you restart WorkStation.

  • When no language has been actively selected in WorkStation, the language given by the regional settings of the computer's operating system apply provided that the language package for that language is installed.

  • If the language package for the language given by the regional setting is not installed, the WorkStation user interface is displayed in English.

  • In Windows Control Panel , you can check whether or not a language package is installed on the computer.

The language packages are version sensitive, the version of the language package must correspond with the version of WorkStation. If you upgrade your current WorkStation, you must also upgrade your language package version.

WorkStation and servers are built on a multilingual language platform that supports all characters included in the Basic Multilingual Plan,

Languages in WebStation
