A Language targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the locale specified in the targeting item is installed on the processing computer. Additional options allow you to restrict the targeting to the user's or computer's locale. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer's locale does not match the specified locale in the targeting item.
A locale is composed of a language and, in some cases, a geographic area in which the language is spoken or the alphabet used. For example, French (Canada) is a locale composed of the language French and the geographic area Canada.
