About Languages Supported by the Service Catalog
Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager, System Center 2012 - Service Manager
The Self-Service Portal in System Center 2012 – Service Manager supports many localized languages for service offerings. The following is a list of languages that are supported in Microsoft SharePoint 2010 products and in Service Manager. These languages are supported in the Service Manager console by means of the service offering Language item that you select. Accordingly, after you install the appropriate SharePoint 2010 language pack on the server that hosts SharePoint 2010 and the Self-Service Portal, you can select the corresponding SharePoint Language ID in the Self-Service Portal by using Site Settings in Site Administration and then selecting the default and alternate languages that you want to use with Language Settings.
There is an exception for East Asian languages. Specifically, in the Service Manager console you must select Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) and Chinese (Simplified) instead of the Chinese (Traditional) and Chinese (Simplified, China) options that the Self-Service Portal and SharePoint 2010 display.
The Service Manager console supports more languages than the languages in the following table. You can use languages—that are available in the Self-Service Portal and not listed in the table—in Silverlight modules when you localize the modules in other languages and then host them outside SharePoint 2010.
