Language packs in System Center Configuration Manager

Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch)

This topic provides technical details about language support in System Center Configuration Manager.

Supported operating system languages

You can install support for the display languages in the following tables by installing server language packs or client language packs at a central administration site and at primary sites. You select the server and client languages to support at a site from the available language pack files during the site installation process.

Language pack files are downloaded when you run Setup as part of the prerequisites and redistributable file download. You also can use Setup Downloader to download these files before you run Setup.

Use the following table to map a locale ID to a language that you want to support on servers or client computers. For more information about locale IDs, see Locale IDs assigned by Microsoft.

Mobile device client languages

When you add support for mobile device languages, all supported mobile device client languages are included. You cannot select individual language packs for mobile device support.

Identify installed language packs

To identify the language packs that are installed on a computer that runs the Configuration Manager client, look for the locale ID (LCID) of the installed language packs in the computer's registry. This information is available at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCMSetup\InstalledLangs

You can use hardware inventory to collect this information, and then build a custom report to view the language details. For information about collecting custom hardware inventory, see How to configure hardware inventory in System Center Configuration Manager. For information about creating reports, see the Manage Configuration Manager reports section in the Operations and maintenance for reporting in System Center Configuration Manager topic.
