6.1 Configuring Language Settings for International Versions

In addition to English, PlateSpin Protect provides National Language Support (NLS) for the following international languages:

  • Chinese Simplified

  • Chinese Traditional

  • French

  • German

  • Japanese

To manage your PlateSpin Server in one of these supported languages, configure the language code for the operating system on the PlateSpin Server host and in your Web browser.

6.1.1 Setting the Language on the Operating System

The language of a small portion of system messages generated by the PlateSpin Server depends on the operating system interface language selected in your PlateSpin Server host.

To change the operating system language:

  1. Access your PlateSpin Server host.

  2. Start the Regional and Language Options applet (click Start > Run, type intl.cpl, and press Enter), then click the Languages (Windows Server 2003) or Keyboards and Languages (Windows Server 2008) tab, as applicable.

  3. If it is not already installed, install the required language pack. You might need access to your OS installation media.

  4. Select the required language as the interface language of the operating system. When you are prompted, log out or restart the system.

6.1.2 Setting the Language in Your Web Browser

To use the PlateSpin Protect Web Interface in one of these languages, the corresponding language must be added in your web browser and moved to the top of the order of preference:

  1. Access the Languages setting in your web browser:

    • Chrome:

      1. From the Chrome menu, click Settings, then scroll to and click Show advanced settings.

      2. Scroll to Languages, then click Language and input settings.

    • Firefox:

      1. From the Tools menu, select Options, then select the Content tab.

      2. Under Languages, click Choose.

    • Internet Explorer:

      1. From the Tools menu, select Internet Options, then select the General tab.

      2. Under Appearance, click Languages.

  2. Add the required language and move it up the top of the list.

  3. Save the settings, then start the client application by connecting to your PlateSpin Server. See Launching the Web Interface.

NOTE:(For users of Chinese Traditional and Chinese Simplified languages) Attempting to connect to the PlateSpin Server with a browser that does not have a specific version of Chinese added might result in web server errors. For correct operation, use your browser’s configuration settings to add a specific Chinese language (for example, Chinese [zh-cn] or Chinese [zh-tw]). Do not use the culture-neutral Chinese [zh] language.
