Making Business Central available in new markets

Note

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review the “Summary of what’s new” page in the contents to the left. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

Business Central has a combined localization strategy inclusive of both Microsoft-led and partner-led models. We continue to respond to partner-led scenarios and anticipate additional countries being delivered via localization app extensions in Microsoft AppSource. Additionally, in this release Microsoft also delivers a localized version of Business Central in the following markets:

  • Iceland
  • Norway
  • Mexico

There is an interest in Business Central in countries that the Microsoft-led localization model does not cover. Often the interest is due to international companies running their worldwide operation on Business Central. By enabling partner-led localizations for Business Central, through localization and translation apps, partners can continue to serve customers throughout the world.

Localization of Business Central using localization and translation apps

Partners interested in providing Business Central localizations in markets that Microsoft does not cover will be able to do so by developing localization and translation apps on top of the international (W1) version of Business Central.

The process, requirements, scope, guidance, and resources for developing localization apps can be found at aka.ms/businesscentrallocapps.

For a list of currently supported markets, see the International availability of Microsoft Dynamics 365 deck and the Local Functionality landing page in the Business Central docs.
