Adding a New Language to a Rights Policy Template

Updated: October 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1

When you create a rights policy template, you select which language that template uses. By default, rights policy templates use the language setting of your server operating system.

If you have AD RMS-enabled clients that use a different language setting on their operating systems, selecting their language setting when you create or update the rights policy template enables the template to reflect the preferred regional language option of the client.

Membership in the local AD RMS Template Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To add a new language to a rights policy template

  1. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:

    Get-ChildItem -Path <drive>:\RightsPolicyTemplate

    Where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive. Note the ID of the rights policy template that you want to modify.

  2. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type:

    New-Item -Path <drive>:\RightsPolicyTemplate\<template_ID>\IdentificationInfo\<locale> -DisplayName <display_name> -Description <description>

    Where <drive> is the name of the Windows PowerShell drive, <template_ID> is the ID of the template you found in the preceding step, <locale> is the locale code (such as en-US), <display_name> is the language-specific name of the template to display to the user, and <description> is the language-specific description of the rights policy template.


Rather than typing out the entire rights policy template ID on the command line, you can type the first few characters and then press the TAB key. Windows PowerShell will then complete the ID for you.
