Component or Tool

Description

Master Data Services Setup

Master Data Services Setup is available in 11 languages. A separate Master Data Services Setup program is available for each language. Select the English Setup program when you want the Master Data Manager Web application to be available and supported in languages that differ from the Setup language. For more information, see the Master Data Manager description below.

Master Data Services Configuration Manager

Master Data Services Configuration Manager is available in the same 11 languages as Master Data Services Setup. The Setup language determines the Master Data Services Configuration Manager language. For example, if you choose German for the Setup language, Master Data Services Configuration Manager is available in German on that computer.

Master Data Manager

When you run Master Data Services Setup in English, the Master Data Manager Web application is available and supported in 22 application languages. Master Data Manager can display in any of those application languages and accept locale-specific input based on the language preferences of the client Web browser. If the language preferences are configured for a non-supported application language, Master Data Manager defaults to English.

When you run Setup in a language other than English, resources are included for the 22 Master Data Manager application languages but it is not a supported scenario for clients to use Master Data Manager in a language other than the selected Setup language. If you try to access Master Data Manager in a language different from the Setup language, you might experience problems with data display and input in the application.

Master Data Services database

Information in the Master Data Services database is not specific to any locale. This enables Master Data Manager to determine how to display information, such as dates and numbers, in the format determined by the language preferences of the client Web browser.

The following table lists the languages available for Master Data Services Setup, Master Data Services Configuration Manager, Master Data Manager, and the Master Data Services Web service.
