Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 Excel Web App localization (ru_RU) issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all!
    I've installed Office 2010 Web Apps just recently. All works fine except Editing mode in Excel Services.
    There is a localization issue.
    We use russian locale by default (ru-RU). So, following languages packs are installed:

    Sharepoint Language ru_RU pack (sp2),
    Server Language pack ru_RU (sp2),
    Office 2010 Language pack ru_RU (sp2).

    But when Excel file opens in editing mode, following error modal window appears:

    UI culture Russian (ru-RU) is not supported.
    UI culture English (U.S.) (en-US) is being used instead.
    Click OK to view the workbook using UI culture English (U.S.) (en-US).

    After clicking on the OK button, workbook closes unexpectedly.

    Web Application log:

    Unsupported UI culture ru-RU was requested. Fell back to en-US. [Session: 1.E48.http://localhost/it/Shared%20Documents/Book.xlsx90.5.en-US5.ru-RU73.-0420#0000-00-00-00T00:00:00:0000#+0000#0000-00-00-00T00:00:00:0000#-006036.c2e5b824-c470-45e1-8ed5-649964fea17324.SJwLaX1kD0OWt3WfHAn4hg== User: 0#.w|mz\chirkunovks] 0db4a04a-e730-47a6-b7ae-24a675155823

    ExcelServerRegionalSettings.SafeSetCurrentUICulture: Performed our own fallback outside of OLEO. Requested culture = ru-RU; Fallback culture = en-US da25b103-b796-4dd8-9d6e-05d365a5b7b8

    I've inspected installed language packs, and found, that Microsoft Excel Web App Russian Language Pack [14] and Microsoft Excel Services English Language Pack [14] do exist, but  Microsoft Office Excel Services Russian Language Pack [12] doesn't.

    We use Sharepoint 2010 server Enterprise, that was migrated from Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise. Please help to solve this issue.

  • Did you re-install the SP2 LP after installing OWA? Is OWA also now SP2?

  • Yes, I did.
    Word Viewer/Editor OWA and Power Point Viewer/Editor OWA language locale is correct (ru-RU).
    But  Excel Viewer/Editor language locale (en-US) is not.

    OWA SP2 was installed and deployed at Sharepoint 2010 before language pack installation.
