Updated: November 1, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

This section describes the supported configurations for different language versions of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 system. It doesn’t include information about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Language Pack support, but instead explains the supported configurations for the base-language versions. For more information about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Language Pack, see Install and enable a Language Pack.

The following requirements must be met when you run Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server with applications such as SQL Server. Note that all available Dynamics 365 languages are supported.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 product

Requirement

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server

The base language of Windows Server, SQL Server, Microsoft .NET Framework, MDAC, and MSXML must be either the same language as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server or English. If an application isn’t available in a certain language, the English version can be used.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Outlook

The base language of Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, Microsoft .NET Framework, MDAC, and MSXML don’t have to be the same language as Dynamics 365 for Outlook.

Each client stack in a single deployment can be in a different language.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server and Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Outlook

The base language version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server must match that of Dynamics 365 for Outlook.

For example, there can’t be some users who run the German version of Dynamics 365 for Outlook while other users run the English version. For this scenario, we recommend provisioning the appropriate Microsoft Dynamics 365 Language Pack.

For example, you could have the following configuration with German as the base language for all programs:

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server

  • Windows Server

  • Microsoft SQL Server

  • Microsoft Exchange Server

  • MSXML

  • .NET Framework

As another example, you could have Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server with Swedish as its base language, and it could be configured with the following applications that have English as their base language:

  • Windows Server

  • Microsoft SQL Server

  • Microsoft Exchange Server

  • MSXML

  • .NET Framework
