Enable languages in your organization to display the user interface and Help in a language that’s different from the base language.

Before users can start using a Language Pack to display a language, the Language Pack must be enabled in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 organization.

  1. Start the Microsoft Dynamics 365 web application. You’ll need a System Administrator security role or equivalent privileges for the Microsoft Dynamics 365 organization that you want to provision a Language Pack for.

  2. Go to Settings > Administration.

  3. Click Languages to open the Language Settings dialog box. Here you’ll see each Language Pack installed in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 deployment, with a check box to the left of each listed Language Pack

  4. For each Language Pack that you want to provision (enable), select the check box next to it. For each Language Pack that you want to unprovision (disable), clear the check box.

  5. Click Apply.

  6. Click OK on any confirmation dialog boxes that open.

    It may take several minutes for Microsoft Dynamics 365 to provision or unprovision the languages.

  7. To close the Language Settings dialog box, click Close.

Repeat the previous steps for each organization in your Microsoft Dynamics 365 deployment.

Each user selects the language to display in both the Microsoft Dynamics 365 web client and Dynamics 365 for Outlook applications.

In Dynamics 365 for Outlook, the user language settings only apply to Dynamics 365 for Outlook features, such as the user interface display of the Dynamics 365 menu, and don’t affect other areas of Microsoft Office Outlook. To display all of the Dynamics 365 for Outlook user interface or Help in multiple languages, you need to install one or more Microsoft OfficeLanguage Packs.

By default, Windows 10 includes a limited number of available languages. If your language is not already available on Windows 10, you’ll need to download and install it before you install Dynamics 365 for Outlook. More information: Language packs.
