Install and use Windchill in multiple language(s)

100% helpful (4/4)

Windchill can display menu items / table headings / actions, etc. in several languages.

Each user can decide at any time which to display from those installed.

This example has only one language installed in addition to English – French.

Every Windchill file that are used to display English words now has an additional similar file with the language (fr for French in this example).

Because these exist, each user can select their desired language (of those installed) at any time.

 

Default English:

Each user has this choice (list will include those language(s) which have been installed). Does not affect any other user. By moving English back to the top, it will revert to English at any time.

Many multi-national companies are not aware of this and don’t take advantage of it (no cost / no performance penalty / no issues for upgrades).

 

Comments

In my experience adding additional languages does cause Method Server startup time to increase. For that reason I recommend to only add the languages you need; don't select all languages if they are not all required.
