Configuring Language Settings


Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-22

Different countries and regions have differing conventions for the formatting and presentation of information such as date, time, and currency. To accommodate these differences, you use the Locales tab to define how to display date, currency, and time values, and to define how to control other international settings, such as sorting order.

For each locale listed on the Locales tab, the server can supply clients with data sorted and formatted according to the conventions used in that locale. For example, if Hindi appears in the list, Hindi language clients that connect to the server see information sorted and formatted in Hindi. For detailed instructions, see How to Add a Locale to the Server.
