Regional and language options for your environment

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

The following table shows tasks that are associated with changing regional and language options for your organization.

Task Description
Set the base language The base language determines default settings for regional and language options in model-driven apps in Dynamics 365, such as Dynamics 365 Sales and Customer Service. After the base language is set, you can’t change it.
Enable or disable languages You can enable or disable available languages in the Settings area.
Add and remove currencies Similar to setting the base language, you select your organization's base currency during the purchasing process for a subscription. After the base currency is set, you can’t change it.

However, if your organization uses more than one currency to track financial transactions, you can add currencies.
Deactivate or activate currency records You can’t delete currency records that are being used by other records, such as opportunities or invoices. However, you can deactivate currency records so they won’t be available for future transactions.

Enable the language

These settings can be found in the Power Platform Admin center by going to Environments > [select an environment] > Settings > Product > Languages.

Make sure you have the System Administrator or System Customizer security role or equivalent permissions to update the setting.

  • Follow the steps in View your user profile.
  • Don’t have the correct permissions? Contact your system administrator.
